I have been trying to get this restarted as well, but there are issues. It seems that employers like certifications: it makes life easier. You could argue that employers can do their research and look in CPAN (or even perlmonks), but an over-worked, non-technical HR department will not.
As you can see from the posts here, there is a large body of opinion against certifications in the community. Certification would be meaningless without the community's backing. In my opinion the only people with the necessary respect to run such a scheme would be the Perl Foundation. I sent an email a few months ago to several TPF worthies, but replies there were none.
One reason they might not be interested is the legal aspect. Saying that someone has skills to a certain level is open to litigation should that not be the case. This has been a show-stopper to several certification schemes.
Some have mentioned that TPF's charitable status would be compromised, but I don't see that, in that it should be self-financing.
Anyways, good luck vroom.

Update: TPF has been in touch to resolve the lost emails, thanks to this posting.
