If there are many changes made on a page or pages, the parties may replace the affected page(s) with the amended page(s), which should be signed by the signatories on each page. If the original page is returned to IAC, the parties should strike through that page(s) and sign against the line striking through the page(s). Where there are extensive changes to the CA, the parties should also send the amended softcopy of the CA to IAC.
The amended pages, together with the original pages where applicable, should be returned to IAC by hand as soon as possible, to avoid delay in certification of the CA.
