Default Form 186 expires - renewal?

Hi guys

I called ECFMG and asked them what to do when my form 186 expires. I called ECFMG and asked them if I need to have it signed by an official from my med school after expiration. The person on the phone said my credentials are complete and I can have the form notarized in the US.

Now my question is: has anyone seen a similar situation like this? Is the notary enough to renew the form 186 or I have to have the form signed by med school official too?

Appreciate your answers
