Under the Accelerated Adoption Initiative, MLA provided temporary relief for costs incurred for the delivery of key products and services from MLA including LPA Production Assurance (LPA) accreditation and reaccreditation, LPA National Vendor Declaration (NVD) books, eDEC tokens and hardcopy LPA materials.

Be mindful not to stock up on LPA NVD books due to the upcoming version changes. Using an eNVD ensures you always have access to the latest version available.
