Process from the first request until the deposit

Part of the escrow arrangement is the deposit of the material. The escrow agreement specifies the material involved. This page gives you additional information about the process of filing and the requests we send you to check for new material.

As part of the Escrow Alliance questions service, we send you an email 4 times a year (or more if you like) asking you to indicate if you will be submitting new material.

You can choose from three options below:

  • You will submit material and start the process of submission
  • At the time of the request there is no new material to provide, but you expect to do so within two months
  • There is no reason to provide new material
