Validating BANs

If you are the owning CCNA, you can find the BAN by entering related information and selecting from a list of valid BANs. If you are not the owning CCNA, you can validate the BAN by entering it directly. You can then copy the valid BAN so that you can paste it into the appropriate fields when you prepare the request.

  1. Click the Pre-Order tab.

  2. Click the BAN Validation tab. The BAN Validation form appears.

  3. Do one of the following:

  4. If you are not the owning CCNA, select the LOA check box. (You must enter the ACNA and the BAN itself in a later step.)

  5. Click Validate. (Or you can reset or clear the form if needed and start over. See Resetting or Clearing a Pre-Order Form.)
