Form 3 approvals in 11 days?
Well, almost two weeks ago we started using the new eForm submission system from the NFA Branch. I have to admit that it's been a bit of a bumpy ride with multiple issues - including a slow/klunky interface and several system outages. Fortunately, we got back our first Form 3 submissions with this system today - and it only took 11 days! That's down from almost 6 weeks for the forms that went in using the previous system. At the end of the day, the new system is well worth it for a variety of reasons:
- It's much faster!
- It enables us to enter data directly into the NFA database - which eliminates many of the back-and-forth errors that plague paper forms.
- We now get approvals back via email, with is faster and more reliable than the snail mail approvals from the past.
- Did I mention the 11 day approval time!?
