From DCAT Value Chain Insights (VCI)
Health Canada, the national pharmaceutical regulatory agency of Canada, has launched the Drug and Health Product Inspections Database, a new online resource designed to provide access to information on inspections of companies that manufacture and sell drug products for the Canadian market. Canadians can search the site for information on inspection findings, including which companies have a good history of meeting safety and quality standards and which do not.
The new tool was initiated under the Regulatory Transparency and Openness Framework, Health Canada’s plan for improving access to timely, useful and relevant health and safety. The tool provides centralized access to plain-language, timely information on inspections. The searchable Drug and Health Product Inspections Database brings together key data about drug establishments and inspection results, including detailed report cards from inspections of drug establishments in Canada and abroad. The searchable web tool provides information on both foreign and domestic drug inspections conducted by Health Canada and abroad since 2012. Onsite drug inspections are carried out on more than 400 drug companies every year in Canada.
