The majority of DDS notices are correct, and the DQB dates and releases it to the
claimant and any appointed representative (e.g., attorney or non-attorney representative)
at the conclusion of the review. The CEF will include a dated image of the released
notice, and the DQB does not have to annotate the CEF with the date the notice is
released. The notice release date is entered in the OQR legacy system and can be viewed
in eView on the Case Review screen under the Case Data tab.
There are instances, however, when the notice is incorrect, either because of the
review findings or because the notice itself is technically deficient. When this occurs,
the quality reviewer must prepare a corrected notice for the CEF.
