During the application process of an Internet Content Provider (ICP) filing and after the ICP filing is obtained, Alibaba Cloud will notify specified users through multiple channels about the progress, status change result, and review result for specific items. We recommend that you determine the contacts and receiving channels of notifications and finish the settings in advance by reference to this topic before you start to apply for an ICP filing. This ensures that the ICP filing application progress will not be affected by delayed receipt of notifications.
