    Your client requires a valid, completed CMRT. If you don’t have one, create a new CMRT or download your previous CMRT upgraded to the current version.

  4. On the main page, review the regulation details and the available regulation Resources.

  5. Depending on whether you have products associated with your customer, or the scope of your CMRT, you will complete one of the following workflows:
    1. Customer Without Products
    2. Product Level Declaration
    3. Company Level Declaration

Note: Some clients may configure their ACM to only accept specific declaration scopes in uploaded CMRTs or to block the upload of invalid CMRTs. For example, if the customer only wants Product Level CMRTs, the option to upload Company Level CMRTs will not be available.

Customer Without Products

If you don't have any products associated with the requesting customer, you can upload a Company Level CMRT and will not see the products table.
