Continuing Disability Review (CDR) reconsiderations are no longer excluded from electronic
folder case processing. If the CDR being appealed was processed in Electronic Disability
Collect System (EDCS), process the reconsideration electronically as well.
The Field Office (FO) continues to serve as the starting point for CDRs, and therefore
handles CDR reconsiderations. While many CDRs involve paper Comparison Point Decision
(CPD) folders, some cases have electronic CPD folders. The new electronic capability
allows CPD folders to link with the electronic CDR (eCDR) and processed electronically.
