- Your partner does not have an active MPN or your MPN has expired. Please login to MPN and create a new MPN or renew your expired MPN and provide this information to email@example.com no later than March 31 for the H2 period or September 30th for the H1 period.
- Your Partner did not associate the technical requirements by the required deadline. March 31th is the dead line for the H2 period and September 30 is the deadline for H1 period.
