Reading and following application instructions is key to a smooth application submission process. This is why we’re continually seeking to make it easier for you to find and understand the information you need. If you take a look at the December release of our application guide, you will see that we’ve worked really hard to simplify the language and presentation of our application instructions.
A recent Guide notice highlights our changes:
- We have completely rewritten form instructions for clarity.
- We added headings and labeling to distinguish instructions from supporting information.
- We clarified what is required and optional throughout the instructions.
- We highlight updated instructions with a new symbol: In the web (HTML) version of the application instructions, you can use your mouse to hover over the icon to read an explanation of the change.
Recent changes continue to be summarized for your convenience in the Significant Changes section of the application instructions.
