Understanding the process of how to have your medical devices authorized for sale by Health Canada is the first step in entering the Canadian medical devices market. Health Canada reviews medical devices to assess their safety, effectiveness and quality before being authorized for sale in Canada. The term Medical Devices, as defined in Canada’s Food and Drugs Act, covers a wide range of health or medical instruments used in the treatment, mitigation, diagnosis or prevention of a disease or abnormal physical condition. Medical device regulations in Canada apply to the manufacturing, sale and advertising for sale of medical devices and their importation. These regulations also apply to in vitro diagnostic products.
All medical devices in Canada must be deemed safe and effective, including software accompanying any medical device.
