OFLC Announces Schedule for the Initial Phase of Decommissioning the iCERT System
As part of the Department's technology modernization initiative, the Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG) System was developed to replace the legacy iCERT System, improve customer service, and modernize the administration of foreign labor certification programs.
The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) is making this public service announcement to alert employers and other interested stakeholders that the iCERT System continues to be accessible, but will transition to a read-only mode as the Department initiates full decommissioning of the legacy system.
Effective February 28, 2020, iCERT System account users will no longer be able to take any actions on their applications (e.g., delete initiated applications, request redeterminations, request center director reviews, withdraw applications, and upload supporting documents) within the respective Prevailing Wage, LCA, H-2A, or H-2B program areas of the legacy iCERT System. However, iCERT System account users will retain the ability to access their accounts and view, download, or copy information related to their applications after the iCERT System is placed in a read-only mode.
Beginning February 28, 2020, iCERT System account users who need to request a specific case action on an application available in the iCERT System should contact the relevant OFLC program helpdesk for review and appropriate action.
