This will depend upon the product and the states involved. Generally the process can take 6-9 months. The quality of the original submission is critical as is following the appropriate process and maintaining frequent communication with the regulator. Delays occur when forms need to be resubmitted because of incomplete or inaccurate submissions. At TSG, we pride ourselves on our ability to submit complete and accurate submissions, resulting in a smoother approval process for clients.
