  • Don't hand-write on the Control List for Supplementary Form and Other Form Uploaded except the tick in appropriate box of declaration, full name of service provider being engaged, if applicable, name and designation of the person signing the Control list, signature and date of signing in Section 2.

  • Don't amend any data in the XML file of supplementary forms and other forms for submission
