While your Initial Disclosure is in Submitted for Review status, you may still view this disclosure. Go to the Revise column, middle of the COI landing page and click on the Other Disclosure(s) in Progress button.

Once the review has been completed, this Initial Disclosure becomes your Master Disclosure, which may be viewed and revised. See the sections on Revise your Master Disclosure and Print your Approved Master Disclosure

Why can’t I certify my Disclosure?

You will not be allowed to certify your submission before completing all the required steps. You should receive an alert message window explaining what is missing, such as “You have at least one project for which you have not defined the relationship to an SFI.” Return to the section noted in the alert message and complete the required entries before you attempt to certify again.
