Hey folks, at time of typing the ASPC admin section is processing as follows, if you have applied during August why not say hi in our August Applications thread and join other members on the same time line.

Onshore Applications: receipting applications received on 18 July 2007 and acknowledging applications received on 18 July 2007.

Offshore Applications: receipting applications received on 29 June 2007 and acknowledging applications received on 30 April 2007.

Applicants and representatives who have not authorised e-mail communication will not receive separate advice that the ASPC has received and receipted an application and will receive the standard acknowledgement letter and receipt details in due course.

Please note that any delay in acknowledging an application does not affect the date on which a valid application is recorded as having been received and does not delay processing of the application.

Once an application has been acknowledged a case officer is appointed to assess each application as soon as possible, however, the ASPC receives a large number of applications and you will not be contacted immediately.

Applications lodged on or before the dates shown below have been allocated to case officers for further processing.
