For registered deemed-compliant FFIs that are members of an EAG, the certification can be completed individually or collectively for the FFI's EAG. In order to complete a collective certification of compliance, the registered deemed-complaint FFI whose Responsible Officer (RO) is completing the certification must be registered as a lead FI and must indicated "Yes" to this question.
If "yes" is selected, the system will display a list of eligible members based on the registration. The RO must select at least one member from the list of eligible members; if no members are selected, the system will display an error message.
If "no" is selected, the registered deemed complaint FFI will be completing a periodic certification only for itself, and not its members.
