What is the FHA Connection e-CB approval process?

Once an LI lender indicates that they are ready to submit a test binder, FHA will assign testing credentials and create a test folder on the FHA test server where the LI lender will deliver the test binder using a secure FTP of the LI lenders choosing.  FHA staff will review the test submission for legibility and indexing of documents.  FHA staff does not perform endorsement processing on a test binder.
