For certified electronic folders (CEF), the DDS adds a message to the CEF immediately
prior to case closure, including detailed instructions to the FO to release the notice.
When the case is closed on the DDS case processing system, the completed notice attachments
not released by the DDS, are uploaded to the CEF and stored in the appropriate section.
The FO is responsible for printing, date stamping, and releasing the notice attachments.
If the FO believes a paragraph has been omitted or improperly designated, the FO contacts
the DDS to resolve the matter.
NOTE: The DDS case processing systems electronically date the PDNs when the PDNs print
upon case closure. The date appears on the paper and electronic versions of the PDN.
However, due to system limitations, there are times when no date appears on the paper
or electronic image versions of the PDN.
For additional CEF notice instructions see, DI 81020.130 – Electronic Case Closure.
