Occasionally an inspection that has been submitted successfully may require changes to be made and for a re-submission to take place.
This is usually because the submitting company or the operator has requested a change to the original observations raised. Once established that the report requires such changes you will need to do the following:
1. First of all, contact the submitting company who originally commissioned the inspection, if the inspection has not been processed you should be able to re-submit your report without any further action from the submitting company, if the report has been processed and made available for comments to the operator the submitting company will need to ensure they have marked the report for re-submission (this must be completed in SIRE to allow you to re-submit successfully) Always check with the submitting company before proceeding to attempt to re-submit the inspection.
2. Once confirmed, make the required changes to the report in your editor software and then validate and submit the report again. The report should then be uploaded and will be made available to the submitting company immediately. It will automatically replace your previous submission, the report can then be checked and processed to be forwarded to the operator for final comments.
If when submitting from your editor you receive the following error "This report has not been marked for re-submission. Please contact your submitting company." Please check again with the submitting company to ensure they have marked the report for re-submission.
If they are certain they have completed this process correctly please contact the support team at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
Also please be aware that in these circumstances it is not usually necessary to withdraw a report if corrections/changes are required. If the report has been withdrawn a re-submission may not be possible without assistance from the support team. If you are still unable to submit your inspection after going through the steps outlined above, contact the help desk and provide details of the inspection.
