The Multi-Regional Indicator Box in ICIS is Now to be Populated by the Regions
Purpose: Previous to ICIS Release 3.6, regions needed to contact OECA’s Reporting Analysis Branch (RAB) to request that the multi-regional Indicator be selected. Now, regions have the ability to select the multi-regional indicator, saving them the step of contacting headquarters.
Data Entry: The multi-regional Indicator in ICIS is mandatory for national cases and must now be populated by the regions. Selecting the multi-regional box will ensure that the enforcement action will appear in reports that capture national cases, e.g., the Big Case Report. Regions no longer need to alert HQ (RAB) that a case is multi-regional once the indicator box is selected.
Instructions for selecting the multi-regional indicator:
a. Go to the Basic Info screen of the Enforcement Action module;
b. On the right hand side of the screen, under “Status Data,” click on the box to the right of “Multi-regional”;
c. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click either “Save and Exit” or “Save and Continue.”
Please remember that all other National Case data conventions still apply: (including “(NC)” or “(National Case)” in the Enforcement Action and Final Order Names, and, as indicated above, identifying the lead region for the national case by including “Lead” in the enforcement action and final order names as well.
Data Retrieval: Various ICIS reports use the multi-regional indicator box to identify national cases, e.g. the Big Case Report.
