The Urgency of the Situation
Upon learning about the extension of the MDR DoA, it's understandable to assume that more time is now available to prepare the necessary documents. However, this assumption is far from reality. The clock is ticking, and there is no time to waste. By May 25th, 2024, which is less than a year away, you must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to your chosen Notified Body. Just four months after that, the application must be mutually accepted and signed.
The Techfile Challenge
To successfully pass through the gate of regulatory compliance, you will need to provide a comprehensive Techfile that includes up to 80 different documents. Based on experience, the process may require several iterations before everything is in order. Given the complexity and potential hurdles, it is critical to start the application process without delay.
Avoiding the Last-Minute Rush
As the deadline approaches, the number of stragglers scrambling to meet the requirements will inevitably increase. By getting ahead of the curve and applying now, you can avoid the uncertainty and stress associated with being a last-minute applicant. Getting ahead of the curve not only increases your chances of a smooth approval process, but also allows ample time for any necessary revisions or clarifications.
