Default ECFMG wants another form 186, although mine is already valid


I just registered and paid for the CK exam on Friday (day before yesterday). At the end of the registration, after the payment, I was told that since my form 186 is valid for another 4 years, I do not have to send another one.

The status of my form 186 on OASIS is valid.

However, at the Step 2 CK exam section os OASIS, it says:

Your Most Recent USMLE Step 2 CK Application
Date Received:
Processing Status: Waiting for Certification Statement/Certification of Identification Form

What does this mean? Why does it say this? I don't think I'm supposed to send another form 186, if mine is valid anyway, right? Please do help!
