The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) is making this public service announcement to alert employers and other interested stakeholders that the legacy iCERT System will be fully decommissioned on May 1, 2020.
As part of the Department's technology modernization initiative, the Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG) System (https://flag.dol.gov/) was implemented to replace the legacy iCERT System, improve customer service, and modernize the administration of foreign labor certification programs. On February 28, 2020, OFLC initiated the decommissioning process by transitioning the legacy iCERT System to a read-only mode where users can access their accounts to view, download, or copy information related to their applications.
