If, prior to FO transfer, the EDCS user must take a no-determination action on the
last pending claim in a case:
The user manually commits any Internet documents that should be retained in the electronic
folder (e.g., medical evidence) before taking the no-determination action.
EDCS disassociates any previously associated documents that have not been committed
to the EF.
All document updates, such as notes, document type changes, and retention actions
remain with the document. EDCS will not reset the document updates to their original
If a user accesses the case after the no-determination action, the Internet Documents
page will be a read-only page.
If the user accesses the Preview Internet Documents page after the no-determination
action, the documents will appear in the search results under the document’s SSN.
Any documents the EDCS user previously committed to the case will be viewable in eView.
Note: Disassociating documents when the last claim in the case is an FO determination
allows the documents to be systematically associated to a new case, at case creation,
if the new case has the same Internet Control ID as the disassociated documents. It
also allows documents to be re-associated if an EDCS user reactivates the case.
