Availability and processing

The completed VEER Review is equivalent in all respects to a regular ER Review, with the exception that it is completed in the guaranteed time frame of seven working days* (projects received after 2 p.m. will not be processed until the following day).

The ER Review Program can only commit to providing this VEER Review service when the project has been confirmed to be eligible. Upon receipt of all materials, the ER Review Program will notify the applicant regarding whether a VEER Review can be completed for the project. If not, the ER Review Program will return your check to you and alternatives will be discussed.
