A medical certificate can normally be issued if all the required standards are met. However, if the required standards are not met or further investigations are necessary the issue of the certificate will take longer and may subsequently be declined by the CAA or the EASA Member state/National Authority.
A Class 1 medical certificate is valid for 12 months, unless you are 40 or over and carry out single pilot commercial air transport operations carrying passengers; or you are over 60. In both these cases, the validity is reduced to 6 months.
