certification programs. 20 CFR 655.2(a), 656.3.

well as labor condition applications or labor attestations for the E-3,

allows for the electronic filing of employer applications and

facilitates the transmission and exchange of official notifications and

and uploading all required or responsive documents directly into the

PERM Online System (https://www.plc.doleta.gov/) or Foreign Labor
