System Maintenance Windows

Several times during the year, ETS schedules downtimes where maintenance work is performed on ETS systems. The scheduled system downtimes that will impact your access to the registration and task submission system are listed below. The specific timeframe for each of the outages will be posted on your account prior to the outage. Plan your work in the system accordingly.

Remember, you can prepare task responses, artifacts and video files outside the system independent of these outages.
