Canadian medical device market regulator Health Canada will stop accepting hard copies of some Medical Device License (MDL) application forms starting 1 April 2015, and will also require a separate fee form to be electronically submitted with application forms starting on that same date.
According to an email notice sent out 18 March by Health Canada, requiring separate application and fee forms for Class III and IV devices will help the regulator move closer to a fully electronic MDL application acceptance process. The shift to separate electronic application and fee form submissions will accompany a two-percent fee increase as of 1 April 2015.
Health Canada will continue to accept hard copies of MDL applications for Class II devices as well as private-label and investigational testing applications until further notice, states the email.
