PLEASE NOTE: If you click on one of the fillable PDF forms (i.e., continuing review, exempt application, final report) and you get a message that states:

Please wait…   If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document…
 
Check whether you have a pop-up window asking you to open the document with a different viewer. If you do, then select Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat (if you have that software). If you do not have Adobe Reader, you may download a free version at: http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/ If you have the latest version of Adobe Reader, then this message means your web browser (i.e., Chrome, Firefox) settings need to be reset so PDFs can open in Adobe Reader and not in a default (Preview) setting.  It is best to not use Chrome for our PDF forms. Firefox works best as a browser for these forms.
