At the completion of the questionnaire you will be provided with a unique Report ID and Passcode. You will then be directed to follow-up on the status of your report via web or telephone.
Important: Please record your confirmation number and case number carefully and keep it in a safe place. You will not be able to access your report without these numbers.
Your report will be submitted to the appropriate personnel at American Society For Microbiology
to begin researching the incident.
Account Personnel or Counsel will review the report and they have the option to add status updates or ask additional questions
or visiting this website and selecting Follow-up On a Report (Link) and providing your Report ID and Passcode, you will then be provided with the status update, additional questions, and/or feedback left by the reviewing party. You are also able to add comments to your original report.
