    I have a question re FDA’s approval process for Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). On the FDA website, it says it’ll take 30 days or less to approve an IDE application:

    “An IDE application is considered approved 30 days after it has been received by the FDA, unless the FDA otherwise informs the sponsor via email prior to 30 calendar days from the date of receipt, that the IDE is approved, approved with conditions, or disapproved.”

    https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/investigational-device-exemption-ide/ide-approval-process

    However, with some companies, I noticed it takes far longer than 30 days. For example, Check-Cap submitted an IDE application on Oct 9, 2018, but it didn’t receive approval until Dec 13, 2018, which is far longer than 30 days.

    Why is this? Is this considered normal? Wouldn’t FDA be in violation of its own timeline rules? Please help. I’m trying to figure this out.

    You would have to ask somebody who works at the FDA. There could be any reason for delays, somebody is on vacation, sick, some form needs to be resubmitted.. you know how office work is.
