Collaboration Session #5 - External Data Interface Standards (EDIS)
On September 14, 2010, USCIS hosted its fifth External Data Interface Standards (EDIS) collaboration teleconference to discuss schedule changes and provide stakeholders with the latest updates.

This new system to system interface will be a new electronic filing (e-filing) channel and increase efficiency and improve the acceptance rate for immigration benefit requests.
