Key Benefits

1. Convenient for registered applicants to submit registration documents

The eRPS system can avoid trips or queues when submitting paper materials on site or by mail, and electronic filings are easier to carry and save.

2. Save review approval time and standardize the registration process

It can avoid the paper consumption, reduce the workload, and facilitate the simultaneous review of the project team. Electronic files can avoid artificially modifying replacement behavior because the system has a tracking function to record the operator and the operation process. And documents can be permanently retained for easy review and reference.

3. Complete and clear catalog of required materials

The category where the data is uploaded is further subdivided, and the corresponding data is uploaded according to the directory title. The system has a leak check function, so the data cannot be uploaded if it is incomplete.

4. Adopt CA(Certification Authority) to improve data security level

Only the recipient can read the information and the information will not be tampered with during the delivery process.
