Consultation: Reporting adverse reactions to marketed health products – Draft guidance document for industry – Closed consultation
Current status: Closed
This consultation ran from January 25, 2021 to April 25, 2021.
Health Canada is announcing a 90-day consultation on the revised guidance draft: Reporting adverse reactions to marketed health products - Draft guidance document for industry. The purpose of this consultation is to obtain input on the updated guidance document from all impacted stakeholders.
Health Canada recognizes that, in order to support compliance with the Food and Drug Regulations, it is important for health product manufacturers to understand the regulatory requirements for adverse reaction reporting. The purpose of the guidance document, Reporting Adverse Reactions to Marketed Health Products - Guidance Document for Industry, is to help clarify and specify these reporting requirements.
Since the guidance was last published in 2018, Health Canada has identified several elements of the guidance that require updates to further clarify adverse reaction reporting requirements.
You are invited to comment on the proposed updates to ensure they are clear and relevant and support understanding of the regulatory reporting requirements for industry.
Who was the focus of this consultation
This consultation looked for feedback from all interested Canadians, in particular:
- Market authorization holders
