Medical devices companies who develop their products and wish to sell them in the Canadian market, must acquire knowledge of the Canadian regulatory requirements for medical devices. Moreover, in order to be able to commercialize their products, the manufacturer/importer/distributer must be aware of the new regulatory framework that Health Canada has developed for these products.

Harmonization of the regulatory requirements between Health Canada, the FDA and other regulatory bodies, including the new Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP), is continuously evolving and is intended to reduce the regulatory burden on both the manufacturers and the regulators.
