After the data has been validated, the return will be established on AIMS.

  2. The input documents for CC AMNON are as follows:

    1. Form 5345-D, Examination Request - ERCS (Examination Return Control System) Users.

    2. Form 5354, Examination Request for Non-Master File for Examination Division.
