Drugs

The maintenance and enhancement of health and safety is a responsibility that is shared between government and industry, consumers, healthcare professionals and their respective associations.

Regulated parties that market drugs and medical devices have the primary responsibility for the safety of any product they sell, manufacture, import or distribute to the Canadian public. These regulated parties must comply with all legislative and regulatory requirements.

The Health Products and Food Branch Inspectorate (Inspectorate) has the legislative/regulatory authority to conduct compliance and enforcement activities including: the delivery of inspections, investigations, most establishment licensing and related laboratory analysis functions for the HPFB. It also has a responsibility to foster partnerships in the regulatory community, including our international, federal and provincial partners.
