How long does it take to complete a submission?

The length of time it takes to complete a submission will depend in part on which designation you are submitting to. For example, a Best Practice submission will likely take longer than a Cutting-Edge submission because there are more questions to answer and it may take some time to pull together the evaluation data needed for the submission. Past applicants have shared that it can take between 2 to 8 hours to complete a submission, depending on which designation you are submitting for. That being said, if you feel that completing a submission is taking more time than that, please reach out to us at and we will be happy to troubleshoot with you.
