The Backlog Clearance Team has been made aware of a miscommunication in our Newsletter dated August 2020 and we would like to clarify the matter. It relates to the submission of Type I & II variation applications and states that Type I variations should not be submitted with Type II variations via the FTP server, but via the Digital Variations Portal (DVP). Where only Type I variations are to be submitted, submission is via the DVP. Where Type I and Type II variations are both included in a single submission, these applications should be submitted via the FTP server, as the variations are in many cases interlinked and cannot be separated. However, applicants should remember that such Type I variations are not implementable until the entire variation application (including the Type II variations) is approved by SAHPRA.
