Submit documents electronically

How to send documents to us securely using the Electronic Submission System (ESS).

Access the Electronic Submission System

New users: Submit an online registration request (select 'Register for System Access'). You must register on an individual basis using your corporate email address – this will be your username when logging on to the new system.

Enhancements to our document review process

We have updated the ESS portal to allow the secure exchange of comments on draft documents. For all new cases this will replace the current system that relies on the use of faxes. Comments for existing cases started before 4 September 2017 will be completed using the old fax system unless otherwise agreed with your assigned reader.

Read our presentation (PDF) for a preview of the new comments functionality and what the change means for you. 

A new user procedures document is available below.

If you have questions, please see Contact UKLA for details.
