Consultation on the Proposed Teat Antiseptic Product Monograph
The public consultation is now closed. The What we heard report and the new Teat Antiseptic Monograph are now available.
From Health Canada
Teat antiseptic products are widely used by dairy farmers to help reduce the spread of organisms which may cause mastitis in dairy cattle.
The proposed monograph will provide a tool for efficient regulatory review of teat antiseptic products with well-known safety and efficacy profiles under specific conditions of use. It will also allow a uniform regulatory approach to teat antiseptic products.
We are looking for comments from:
- stakeholders, such as:
- drug manufacturers
- importers and distributors
- veterinarians, food animal producers and their associations
- all others who have an interest, such as:
- dairy farmers
Health Canada currently regulates teat antiseptic products under the Food and Drug Regulations including Division 1 (not new drugs) and Division 8 (new drugs).
The proposed Monograph outlines the specific conditions of use and labelling as well as regulatory requirements to receive market authorization for a teat antiseptic product.
With this proposal, a product and its labelling that is:
- consistent with the information in the monograph, may be considered as a not new drug under Division 1
- outside of the scope of the monograph, may be considered as a new drug under Division 8
When and where
The consultation will be available at canada.ca/health for 8 weeks, from March 6, 2017 to May 6, 2017.
