TOPIC: The missing ESA50 PDF: clarity please

The missing ESA50 PDF: clarity please 5 months 6 days ago #221183

Since joining this site many moons ago I have sought to maintain a reasonably current version on the PDF ESA 50, keeping it and all attached information and documents up to date.

As other forum users have noticed, there’s no longer a PDF available to download and no inkling at to when or whether there will be a new one.

I know that ESA legislation and descriptors have not altered but it’s still troubling for anybody going through assessment or reassessment. I’m sure many, like me, cannot write and can scarcely type.

Thus my query: is it OK for claimant to use a PDF they downloaded earlier this year or even before if they receive the paper form and cannot cope with it?

Thanks for clarification.

As I have told other members, the changes are cosmetic so there should be no problem with using a previous version of the form.
