Form Form 186 rejected due to signature issue!

hi all

ii had send all my forms 186 and the rest of them and they were in process, till yestarday when recieved an email stating the my certification form 186 was not processed on the following grounds

The signature of the certifying individual is not valid. the official either did not date the signature, the signature date is incomplete, the signature date is in the future, or the official signed the certification form more than four months before its reciept at ecfmg.

firstly i got my form signed and certified by the principal who is the authorized official dealing with ecfmg. i dont understand the agenda with date??? secondly i had sent the entire form and everything 2 weeks back, soo no four months issue.

i dont know how to go about this??? should i get another 186 form signed or certified but then again the principal is the same guy. i have an eligibility period of july aug sept but the way things are going i hope i get it by september. can anyone please help me out. i would really appreciate it.

Default This time make sure it's dated correctly

Am sorry to hear your story.

I think the best way is to repeat the process, but this time, try to see the signed Form 186 before they send it to ECFMG. Like send your family member to the dean's office and let him/her have a look or even scan it and email it to you before they send it to ECFMG.

It's likely that the dean has incorrectly dated the signature.

Default thank you

thank you for your reply

i had called up ecfmg and they said its the date, didnt give an exact reason as to whats the issue with the date, but i will be getting the form 186 signed and sealed and properly dated again. plus i also wanted to know my oasis status regarding medical education credential says Form 327A sent for verification on 15july 2011. Does ecfmg continue to process and verify the documents even when they have found my form 186 deficient ????

thanks again

Yes, I told it's the date in my reply.

Form 186 processing is separate from credentials verification.

So yes, they can still go ahead and verify your credentials even though your Form 186 has been rejected.
