Trademark Filing Question - foreign registration

I just finished filing an application for Trademark on a product that we
sell. Now that I can`t modify anything my mind is swimming in "should
have" thoughts. Here is a little background on the situation:

The product is made in England and has been on the market since 1995
and we have been selling it since about the beginning. We are the
exclusive North American distributor. I began the trademark process and
realized that I would probably need the certificate from our partner
company that has the European Registration. They sent me a copy of the
registration cert which I used in my filing. I used the basis 44(e) but didn`t
realize I could put 2 basis on the application. Will I have trouble in the
near future? I`m concerned that the foreign registration certificate is in
our partner company name and the new application is in our name.
Should (could) I amend our application with a section 1(a) basis and
samples? I knew it all seemed fairly simple.

Thanks for any help or advice.

My head is swimming in questions. I just can`t seem to get them all out.
