    OMB approved this information request (without change), however, the proposed changes have not yet been implemented in the latest version of Form EOIR-27. EOIR acknowledged the changes to the Form EOIR-27 proposed herein will need to be implemented in EOIR's eRegistry before the revised form – both hard copy and electronic versions – can be made available for use. The development and implementation of these changes in eRegistry will take several months to complete. In the event that the proposed changes are not ready in eRegistry upon OMB approval of the revisions proposed herein, EOIR will continue to use the current Form EOIR-27 until those changes are finalized.
