On June 4, 2019, the Department of Labor announced beginning June 10, 2019, the Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) is now accepting online submissions of the Form ETA-9141 in the new FLAG (Foreign Labor Application Gateway) System covering all visa programs. The old iCERT System went out of service on June 10, 2019 at 12:00 am. However, individuals who submitted an ETA-9141 through iCERT before June 10th are still able to access their iCERT System accounts to monitor the status of their applications.
According to the DOL, the new FLAG system is cloud-based and will:
- provide personalized user accounts;
- be accessible via mobile devices;
- provide automated field population and digital document signature;
- provide automated case alerts; and
- allow for enhanced document upload capabilities.
A series of instructional videos are now available to educate the stakeholder community on how to create and manage a FLAG System account and how to prepare the Form ETA-9141 to the National Prevailing Wage Center (NPWC).
