Health Canada announced on 28 September the expansion of its pilot project on the use of drug review assessment information from foreign regulatory agencies, such as the European Medicines Agency, in its own marketing authorization review process.
The Use of Foreign Reviews pilot project was first initiated in October 2011 to test whether access to such data would assist Health Canada in meeting its regulatory assessment "targets" by speeding up the application review process.
The pilot will be extended through 31 March 2013 and expanded to include Notifiable Changes (drugs), Risk Management Plans (drugs), Periodic Safety Update Reports and evidence provided to confirm the continued safety and effectiveness of a marketed product (drugs and medical devices).
In addition, the following data packages will also be included:
Comments on the revised draft guidance may be submitted until 31 March 31 2013.
