As defined by the National Council

The checklist is similar to the one used at the Scout Service Center to 

verify the application form and the supportive material in the packet.  

When the Scout has completed the application and has submitted the packet 

to the leader for approval, the Unit Leader and/or Unit Committee should  

check the packet for completeness. If it is complete and the Unit Leader

approves the candidates then the Unit Leader should sign and date the form

in the proper place. The Unit Advancement Chairman should then go through

the entire application and if they approve of the application then the

chairman should sign in the proper location and take (or send) to the

Scout Service Center. This will help the verification processing and will

avoid a delay caused by an application being sent back to the unit to be

corrected. The items below are required by National Council.
