We as a company are thinking about achieving 13485 certification. Is there a rough estimated time schedule on how long the certification process will take starting from zero? We have already looked into the ISO and implemented some processes, however for planning further steps we wanted to setup a timeline.
The implementation process will usually take between 3 months to 18 months depending on the size of the company.
