  • How can I submit a notification?
  • Which form should I use?
  • Which enclosures or documents must accompany my notification?
  • How much is the handling fee?
  • What is the notification procedure like and what steps does it include?
  • What is the current status of my notification, who is in charge of the processing and how long is it estimated to take?
