Question FSMB and FCVS

Hi everbody,
I have a question concerning the verification of my credential through the FCVS
FEDERATION CREDENTIALS VERIFICATION SERVICE, if I am an ECFMG certified do they need to contact my medical school to verify my diploma and transcripts or the primary source verification of my credentials through ECFMG is enough?
so If I want to apply for USMLE step 3 do I need to go through the process of verification of my credentials as I did for the ECFMG?

Thank you.

For Step 3 application you don't need FCVS. Your ECFMG certificate is enough.

For State Licensing (after you finish residency), you might use FCVS to help you get your State license.
