Regulatory Management: Create and Submit a Repository Application Continuing Review


Once a Repository Application has been approved, a Continuing Review can be created to establish a new approval interval.

A Continuing Review (CR) can be created by repository personnel with edit rights listed on the approved application, but only the repository director can submit it for review. After submission, the Continuing Review is locked and no further changes can be made unless requested by a reviewer.

Only one Continuing Review submission for a Repository Application can be in progress at a time.
