Consultation on Health Product Transparency Initiatives
Notice to the reader:
The online consultation is now closed.
Health Canada is seeking feedback from stakeholders on the next steps regarding several of its transparency initiatives for health products. The initiatives to be discussed are the following:
- Summary Basis of Decision (SBD);
- Regulatory Decision Summaries (RDS);
- The Submissions Under Review (SUR) List;
- Summary Safety Reviews (SSR);
- The List of Advertising Complaints; and
- The List of New Safety Reviews.
Health Canada is committed to greater transparency and openness in order to further strengthen understanding of our regulatory decisions. We launched the Regulatory Transparency and Openness Framework (RTOF) in 2014 to support this commitment. The initiatives listed above are part of our commitments under the RTOF, and each provides Canadians with useful information to support informed treatment choices for themselves or others.
The consultation is in the form of an online questionnaire. Each section describes one of the initiatives and is followed by questions on that subject.
The feedback will be used for further development of the initiatives identified above.
