COMING INTO FORCE

2. This Order would come into force on the day on which it is published in the Canada Gazette.

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This explanatory note is not part of the Notice of Intent to amend the Non-domestic Substances List.)

Description

The Notice of Intent is an opportunity for the public to comment on proposed amendments to the Non-domestic Substances List (NDSL), pursuant to subsection 66(2) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), to delete 741 substances from this List.

Background

The NDSL is an inventory of substances new to Canada, but also recognized as being in use internationally. The NDSL is based on the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Chemical Substances Inventory. On a semi-annual basis, substances that have been on the public portion of the U.S. EPA TSCA Chemical Substances Inventory for a minimum period of one year and that are not subject to risk management controls in the United States or in Canada are added to the NDSL. Substances on the NDSL are subject to the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers). However, they are subject to lesser information requirements (e.g. higher reporting thresholds) than new substances that are not listed.

Since the establishment of the NDSL, risk management controls have been developed in the United States on certain substances found on the NDSL. Although controlled in the United States, these substances continue to be subject to lesser reporting requirements in Canada because they are on the NDSL.

Project scope

Environment and Climate Change Canada initiated a review of substances on the NDSL to assess if risk management controls had been developed for these substances in the United States. Moving forward, a bi-annual review will enable the Government of Canada to identify substances that may potentially be of concern and to propose their removal from the NDSL. Risk management controls imposed by other jurisdictions can signal potential concerns in Canada; therefore, more stringent reporting requirements are needed for these substances (i.e. the same requirements as new substances not listed on the NDSL).

Project outcome

Under the current review, a total of 741 substances were identified as being subject to risk management controls in the United States. Therefore, it is proposed to delete these 741 substances from the NDSL. Resulting amendments to the NDSL are expected to improve the protection of Canadians and their environment, while providing greater regulatory alignment with the United States.

Consultation

Consultations were held with key stakeholders in 2015 and they expressed general support for this initiative.

Next steps

Within 60 days of publication of the Notice, any person may submit comments or identify whether any of the 741 substances are currently in the Canadian marketplace in quantities that exceed 100 kg in a calendar year. Comments will be taken into consideration during the development of the final Order, and identified stakeholders with current business interests in these chemicals (i.e. current importers or manufactures) will be engaged to facilitate a transition to the new reporting requirements. For example, delayed removal will be considered for substances in the Canadian marketplace should additional time be required to ensure continued compliance with the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers). The final Order will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I.

Should future bi-annual reviews identify substances of potential concerns, a Notice of Intent would also be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, for a 60-day public consultation, prior to amending the NDSL.

Amendments to the NDSL are not in force until the Order is published in the Canada Gazette, Part I.

ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment of Certain Azo Acid Dyes

Pursuant to section 68 or 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment on 52 azo acid dyes. These substances constitute a subgroup of the Aromatic Azo and Benzidine-based Substance Grouping being assessed as part of the Substance Groupings Initiative of the Government of Canada’s Chemicals Management Plan based on structural similarity and applications. Substances in this Grouping were identified as priorities for assessment as they met categorization criteria under subsection 73(1) of CEPA and/or were considered as a priority based on other human health concerns.

The Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number (CAS RN), Domestic Substances List (DSL) name and Colour Index (C.I.) generic name or common name of the 52 azo acid dyes are presented in the following table.

Note †
This substance was not identified under subsection 73(1) of CEPA but was included in this assessment as it was considered a priority based on other human health concerns.

Note a
Two CAS RNs represent the same substance.

Azo acid dyes are not expected to occur naturally in the environment. No manufacture of any substance above the 100 kg/year reporting threshold has been reported in response to any recent surveys under section 71 of CEPA. Ten substances have been reported as having an import quantity above the 100 kg/year survey reporting threshold (during 2010).

Environment

All azo acid dyes are soluble in water, generally with solubilities well above 1 g/L. Given the import and use of 10 azo acid dyes in Canada above reporting thresholds, potential releases to the aquatic environment have been estimated. Considering the physical and chemical properties of these substances, when released to water, it is expected that the azo acid dyes may remain in the water column for relatively long periods of time due to their hydrophilicity, but will ultimately partition to suspended solids, sediments or soil particles via electrostatic interactions. Available experimental and modelled data regarding the abiotic and biotic degradation of the azo acid dyes indicate that these substances are likely to persist in water, sediment and soil. In anaerobic environments (i.e. anoxic layers of sediments), there is the potential for these substances to degrade to aromatic amines as a result of cleavage of the azo bond under anaerobic or reducing conditions.

Although there are limited experimental data available, information on the log octanol–water partition coefficients and fish bioconcentration factors indicates that these substances are not likely to bioconcentrate or bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms.

While all azo acid dyes are structurally related and are expected to have a common mode of action and environmental fate profile, review of physical-chemical and ecotoxicity data allowed them to be divided into subsets of monoazo, disazo and polyazo acid dyes for which aquatic toxicity levels were variable. Disazo acid dyes presented the highest levels of toxicity (effects at concentrations below 10 mg/L) while monoazo acid dyes showed lower toxicity (effects at concentrations below 100 mg/L). Polyazo substances were the least toxic to aquatic organisms (no effects below 100 mg/L). Soil toxicity data were limited, while sediment toxicity data were not available for these substances.

Risk quotient analyses were focused on exposure scenarios representing potential major environmental releases due to industrial activities involving azo acid dyes that may result in high levels of exposure of aquatic organisms. Predicted environmental concentrations were calculated for the aquatic environment for those substances identified in industrial formulation activities. Predicted environmental concentrations were not found to exceed the predicted no-effect concentrations for water.

Considering all available lines of evidence presented in this screening assessment, there is low risk of harm to organisms and the broader integrity of the environment from the azo acid dyes evaluated in this assessment. It is concluded that these 52 azo acid dyes do not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or 64(b) of CEPA, as they are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

Human health

Environmental media are not considered to be a significant source of exposure to azo acid dyes for the general population in Canada. Seventeen azo acid dyes (i.e. Acid Black 24, Acid Black 26, Acid Blue 113, Acid Orange 33, Acid Red 6, Acid Red 138, amaranth, new coccine, Orange II, tartrazine, substances bearing CAS RN 68155-63-5, CAS RN 70210-05-8, CAS RN 70210-06-9, CAS RN 70210-25-2, CAS RN 70210-34-3, CAS RN 71873-51-3 and CAS RN 84962-50-5) were indicated to be present in products in the Canadian marketplace that may lead to exposure of the general population to these substances. Exposure to amaranth and tartrazine occurs predominantly through food intake and the use of cosmetics, as well as through the use of certain non-prescription drugs (including natural health products regulated under the Food and Drug Regulations and the Natural Health Products Regulations) at the cosmetic-drug interface for tartrazine. Exposure to new coccine and Orange II is predominantly through the use of cosmetics. Exposure to the other 13 azo acid dyes is through contact with textile and/or leather products.

Margins between the upper-bounding estimates of oral exposure to amaranth from food and cosmetics and the critical health effect level from a chronic dietary study in rats are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases.

Margins between the upper-bounding estimates of exposure to new coccine in certain cosmetics and the critical health effect levels are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases.

Margins between the upper-bounding estimates of oral exposure to Orange II in lipstick and the critical health effect levels determined in oral studies in laboratory animals are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases. Similarly, margins between the upper-bounding estimates of dermal exposure to Orange II in certain cosmetics and the no-observed-effect level from the dermal study in mice are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases.

Margins between the upper-bounding estimates of exposure to tartrazine in food, cosmetics and non-prescription drugs at the cosmetic-drug interface and the critical health effect levels are considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases.

A range of critical effect levels from oral repeated-dose studies on azo acid dyes in this subgroup and relevant analogues was identified. However, no effects were observed in a chronic study in which mice received weekly applications to the skin of several azo acid dyes in this subgroup. These data were the basis for the risk characterization of 10 azo acid dyes lacking empirical data (i.e. Acid Red 138, Acid Orange 33, Acid Red 6, Acid Black 26, Acid Blue 113, Acid Black 24, substances bearing CAS RN 71873-51-3, CAS RN 84962-50-5, CAS RN 70210-05-8, and CAS RN 70210-06-9). Margins between upper-bounding estimates of oral exposure via mouthing of textile objects by infants and the range of oral critical effect levels were considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases. Margins between upper-bounding estimates of dermal exposure from direct and prolonged contact with textiles containing these dyes and the no-observed-effect level from the dermal study were considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases.

For three azo acid dyes (i.e. substances bearing CAS RN 68155-63-5, CAS RN 70210-25-2 and CAS RN 70210-34-3), the only potential exposure of the general population identified was from the use of leather products. As exposures to leather products are considered short term and intermittent and as available information does not indicate that azo acid dyes demonstrate high acute toxicity, the risk to human health for the general population is expected to be low.

For the remaining 35 azo acid dyes, available information did not identify potential for direct and prolonged exposure of the general population. Accordingly, risk for the general population to these substances is not expected.

Some of the azo acid dyes addressed in this assessment have effects of concern based on potential carcinogenicity. Whereas available information does not indicate a risk to human health for Canadians at current exposure levels to these substances, there may be a concern if exposures were to increase.

Based on the information presented in this screening assessment, it is concluded that the 52 azo acid dyes evaluated in this assessment do not meet the criteria for human health effects under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA, as they are not currently entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Overall conclusion

It is concluded that the 52 azo acid dyes evaluated in this assessment do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.

Although a risk to human health has not been identified for the general population of Canada at current levels of exposure, some substances in this assessment are recognized to have effects of concern based on their potential carcinogenicity. There may be a concern for human health if exposures of the general population of Canada to these substances were to increase in products available to consumers such as textiles and cosmetics.

Options on how best to monitor changes in the use profile of these substances are being investigated. Stakeholders will have the opportunity to provide feedback on a consultation document, describing potential options for information gathering or preventative actions, to be published once assessments for all of the Aromatic Azo and Benzidine-based Substances are completed.

The current screening assessment concludes that the potential ecological concern identified in the previous assessment of substances bearing CAS RN 71720-89-3, CAS RN 83027-51-4, CAS RN 83027-52-5, CAS RN 90218-20-5, CAS RN 90459-02-2 and CAS RN 114910-04-2 with respect to new uses as described in the screening assessment of 145 persistent, bioaccumulative and inherently toxic substances, published in April 2008, has changed. The current screening assessment concludes that these substances are no longer of concern to the environment, nor considered as having effects of concern. Consequently, the Minister of the Environment intends to rescind Significant New Activity provisions under subsection 81(3) of the Act.

ANNEX I

Summary of the Screening Assessment

As part of the Chemicals Management Plan, the Government of Canada is assessing and managing, where appropriate, the potential health and ecological risks associated with certain polymers under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA). These polymers were identified as priorities for further action following the completion of the categorization in 2006. A section 71 notice for the second phase of the Domestic Substances List Inventory Update initiative was published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, in December 2012 to collect data on approximately 2 700 substances, including polymers. As a result of this data collection exercise, 336 polymers were identified as not being in commerce at quantities greater than 1 000 kg during the 2011 calendar year. A rapid screening approach was applied to these 336 polymers. It involved using conservative assumptions to identify polymers that warrant further evaluation of their potential to cause harm to either human health or the environment, and those that are expected to have a low likelihood of causing harmful ecological or human health effects.

The ecological component of the rapid screening approach of polymers consisted of four main steps to identify substances that warrant further evaluation of their potential to cause harm. The first step involved identifying the substances that have similar structural characteristics to polymeric substances that have been previously subject to risk management under the New Substances Notification Regulations (Chemicals and Polymers) [NSNR]. The second and third steps of the process involved identifying polymers that are likely to have water extractability greater than 2% and determining whether these polymers contain reactive functional groups, as described in items 1 and 5 of Schedule 7 of the NSNR, respectively. The final step involved applying different exposure scenarios using assumptions that are protective of the environment and drawing a comparison with a conservative acute ecotoxicity value for polymers.

The human health component of the rapid screening approach of polymers consisted of a process to determine whether each polymer warranted further assessment from a human health perspective. A key element of the characterization of potential risk for human health was a determination of the potential for exposure to the general population. Polymers reported to be in commerce in Canada at less than or equal to 1 000 kg during the 2011 calendar year are considered to warrant further assessment if there is evidence of direct exposure (e.g. exposure from products) of the general population in Canada. Polymers that posed a potential for direct exposure were also screened against a set of criteria in order to identify those likely to pose a low hazard to human health. If the potential for exposure to a polymer is not expected or the polymer is likely to pose a low hazard to human health, it is concluded that that polymer is unlikely to cause harm to human health at current levels of exposure.

Based on the information available, it is concluded that the 275 polymers listed in Annex II do not meet any of the criteria under section 64 of CEPA, since they are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity, that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends, or that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Conclusion

It is concluded that the 275 substances listed in Annex II do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.

The final screening assessment for these substances is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).

DEPARTMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1999

Announcement of planned actions to assess and manage, where warranted, the risks posed by certain substances to the health of Canadians and the environment

The actions, annexed hereby, outline how Health Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada will address certain substances to reduce related human health and environmental risks.

CATHERINE MCKENNA
Minister of the Environment

JANE PHILPOTT
Minister of Health

ANNEX

Activities Under the Chemicals Management Plan Moving Forward

Under the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP), the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change and the Minister of Health (the ministers) will take multiple actions to protect the health of Canadians and the environment.

1. Background and rationale for action

The ministers take actions to protect human health and the environment pursuant to the CMP under several acts. This notice focuses primarily on actions that they will take under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA). As appropriate, however, actions are also taken under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA), the Pest Control Products Act (PCPA) and the Food and Drugs Act (FDA). For details on actions taken under these acts, please refer to the following Web site: http://www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca/plan/plan-eng.php.

Since its inception, the CMP has represented an integrated, government-wide approach to the assessment and management of chemicals and other substances and has endeavoured to provide business certainty and public confidence through a predictable, science-based regulatory regime. To date, the CMP has assessed approximately 2 750 substances, found 363 substances that present risks to human health or the environment, and has put in place 78 instruments to manage these risks. The many initiatives of the CMP to date include the Challenge Initiative, the Substance Groupings Initiative, the Domestic Substances List (DSL) Inventory Updates, the rapid screening of substances of lower concern, as well as restrictions on the reintroduction or new uses of certain substances. The program supports these initiatives with ongoing risk assessment, risk management, information gathering, research, monitoring and surveillance, stakeholder engagement, public outreach, and international collaboration activities.

The current phase of the CMP began in April 2016. It includes, among other things, steps to address the remaining 1 550 priority substances out of the original 4 300 substances identified as priorities during the categorization exercise. It also includes the ongoing development of risk management actions for additional substances found to present risks that need to be prevented. Addressing these remaining priority substances in Canada supports the global goal of achieving the sound management of chemicals throughout their life cycle by 2020 — a goal that strives to ensure that chemicals are produced and used in ways that minimize significant adverse impacts on human health and the environment.

In order to support informed decision making, the next Inventory Update (IU), planned for fall 2016, will collect information on the commercial status and on exposures for a subset of CMP substances. Other information gathering and research and monitoring activities will also be undertaken to support evidence-based decision making.

This notice also covers

  • the prioritization, screening and assessment of the nano forms of some existing substances;
  • the re-evaluation of pesticides registered prior to 1995; and
  • the further evaluation of substances on the revised InCommerce List.

Engagement and outreach activities will remain important elements of the program.

2. Approach

This initiative retains features of the previous approach of the CMP that were found to be highly effective, such as predictable timelines and effective stakeholder engagement. Building on approaches used previously in the CMP, ongoing assessment activities will address substances or groups of substances using assessment approaches that are “fit-for-purpose.” Such tailoring of assessment approaches will help to focus efforts on the substances of greatest concern and will help make the engagement of stakeholders strategic and targeted. The approaches that may be applied are outlined in the Risk Assessment Toolbox at http:// www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca/fact-fait/ra-tool-outils-er-eng.php.

Management of substance risks will continue to involve the selection and application of tools that are most likely to achieve relevant health and environmental objectives while taking into account socio-economic and other considerations, including the relevant international context.

Canada will continue to participate in international chemical forums in order to ensure that issues and risks that are global in nature can be addressed effectively, and to influence the global agenda that reinforces domestic efforts.

3. Scope

This notice covers the component of the CMP that focuses on the remaining approximately 1 550 substances identified as priorities for further action by the categorization exercise completed in 2006, plus a limited number of additional substances identified as priorities based on new information received since that date. A list of the substances covered under this notice is found at http://www.ec.gc.ca/ese-ees/default.asp?lang=En&n=2A33EEC9-1 and includes information on their structural or functional groups. A two-year work plan for substance assessments will be released and updated regularly, in order to provide advance notice of timelines for each assessment. The substance assessment publication plan for the next two years can be found at http://www.ec.gc.ca/ese-ees/default.asp?lang=En&n=2D9B4BD2-1.

This phase of the program also includes the ongoing development and implementation of risk management instruments. This work will include activities to measure and report on the effectiveness of risk management actions. A two-year rolling schedule of risk management activities and consultation opportunities can be found at http://www.ec.gc.ca/ese-ees/default.asp?lang=En&n=8727ECCE-1. It will be updated regularly.

4. Planned actions

The ministers will take various actions to protect the health of Canadians and the environment from the potential risks associated with multiple substances. These actions may include, where warranted, information gathering, risk assessment, risk management, research and monitoring, stakeholder engagement, and public outreach. Manufacturers, importers and users of substances will continue to be expected to provide information to support risk assessment and risk management.

Specifically, the ministers plan to take the following actions to implement the next phase of the CMP under CEPA:

  • Assess all of the substances covered in this notice within five years. Timelines are being tailored according to priorities, allowing for consideration of stakeholder engagement as well as risk assessment and risk management requirements. Information on key milestones can be found at the following Web site: http://www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca/group/index-eng.php.
  • Provide opportunities for stakeholders to submit information to inform decision making as outlined in the notice of intent published in Part I of the Canada Gazette in February 2016 (http://www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2016/2016-02-06/html/notice-avis-eng.php#nl5), in order to seek early stakeholder engagement on upcoming CMP priority substances.
  • Take into account all relevant information in conducting screening assessments on the substances in a phased manner to determine whether the substances meet one or more of the criteria in section 64 of CEPA.
  • Release draft screening assessment reports for a 60-day public comment period, including the associated proposals under subsection 77(2) of CEPA to take no further action in respect of the substance, to add the substance to the Priority Substances List, or to recommend that the substance be added to the List of Toxic Substances.
  • Consider comments received on draft screening assessments and on the “measure” proposed under subsection 77(2) prior to the release of final assessments and final recommendations under subsection 77(6) or paragraphs 68(b) and (c) of CEPA.
  • Update the inventory of substances in Canada.
  • Identify existing nanomaterials through a section 71 notice, followed by prioritization for further action. Further information can be found at http://www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca/plan/approach-approche/nanomaterials-nanometriques-eng.php.
  • Initiate discussions with stakeholders on risk management, where necessary, at the time of the publication of the draft assessment. In some cases, additional information gathering, including the use of section 71 of CEPA, may be used to support risk management decisions.
  • Consult on proposed risk management actions at the same time as the final assessment publication, by outlining actions the Government proposes to take to protect Canadians and their environment from risks associated with these substances.
  • Develop, implement and enforce risk management actions and measure their effectiveness.
  • Conduct targeted research on CMP priority substances to address outstanding questions and knowledge gaps, identify emerging priorities, conduct strategic research to develop tools and approaches to inform future chemicals assessment, and monitor substances of concern in the environment, in foods and in Canadians to inform decision making.
  • Undertake key engagement and outreach activities, such as public comment periods, webinars, publications, meetings, consultations, trade shows, and use social media to streamline communications and to raise visibility and understanding of the CMP with stakeholders and the public.

The ministers also plan to take the following actions under other legislation:

  • Continue to re-evaluate food additives, food contaminants and food packaging material chemicals for which CMP assessments identify potential risks; enhance food research, monitoring and surveillance activities; continue to conduct special reviews and to re-evaluate older pesticides as required under the Pest Control Products Act; and continue to monitor pesticide health and environmental incidents and take action as needed.
5. Stakeholder engagement

Stakeholder engagement will continue to be an important feature of the CMP. The ministers will continue to make information on chemical substances available publicly. The risk assessment work plan provides the start date for each assessment, and identifies the time frame within which information should be provided, as well as the expected publication date. The risk management work plan also provides information on upcoming stakeholder opportunities for engaging in risk management process activities.

Other opportunities for stakeholder engagement will include

  • engagement to allow stakeholders to provide input into approaches for assessment and management, as appropriate, and to submit relevant information that is not publicly available (it should be noted that systematic stakeholder outreach is not planned for all assessments);
  • public comment periods on risk assessment and risk management documents; and
  • consultations during the selection and development of risk management instruments.

Stakeholders are invited to submit relevant information on substances or indicate their interest in being engaged in discussions on particular substances or substance groups included in this notice of planned actions using the Declaration of Stakeholder Interest, available in the Single Window online reporting system at https://ec.ss.ec.gc.ca (select the “Chemicals Management Plan 3” Initiative). Stakeholders are also invited to subscribe to http://www.chemicalsubstanceschimiques.gc.ca/listserv/index-eng.php to be informed of information sessions and consultations.

FOOD AND DRUGS ACT

PROTECTING CANADIANS FROM UNSAFE DRUGS ACT (VANESSA’S LAW)

Notice of intent to amend the Food and Drug Regulations and the Medical Devices Regulations to implement key authorities under Vanessa’s Law

Notice is hereby given that Health Canada intends to develop and propose amendments to the Food and Drug Regulations and the Medical Devices Regulations as part of the implementation of Vanessa’s Law.

Vanessa’s Law received royal assent on November 6, 2014. It introduced amendments to the Food and Drugs Act (Act) that improve Health Canada’s ability to collect post-market safety information, and take appropriate action when a serious risk to health is identified. These amendments promote better protection of patient health and safety, and increase consumer confidence in therapeutic products on the market.

Upon royal assent, many of the key authorities of Vanessa’s Law came into force immediately. However, other key authorities cannot come into force until supporting regulations are established. The proposed regulations are to be developed in phases and prepublished in the Canada Gazette, Part I, beginning in fall 2016. The initial phase of the implementation would bring forward the following regulatory proposals.

1. Amending the Food and Drug Regulations to

  • prescribe the conditions to which the Minister’s power to make an order under sections 21.31 (assessments) and 21.32 (tests, studies and other activities) of the Act would be subject;
  • pursuant to section 21.7 of the Act, authorize the Minister to impose or to amend terms and conditions on any therapeutic product authorization respecting a drug (including an authorization made through the assignment of a drug identification number [DIN], or the issuance of a notice of compliance [NOC]or of an establishment licence);
  • pursuant to paragraph 30.1(1.2)(d) of the Act, require holders of a therapeutic product authorization respecting a prescription drug or a non-prescription drug that is administered under the supervision of a health care practitioner to report information including risks communicated, changes to the labelling, recalls, reassessments, and suspensions or revocations of authorizations made outside of Canada; and
  • require all DIN holders to report to the Minister when a label change or package modification has been made to mitigate a risk of injury to human health.

2. Amending the Food and Drug Regulations and the Medical Devices Regulations to

  • require notification of a voluntary recall and the risk evaluation within 24 hours following the decision to recall;
  • require a written report, which will include the recall strategy, within 72 hours of the initial recall notification; and
  • clarify, in paragraph 44(2)(b) of the Medical Devices Regulations, that only a health care facility in respect of the medical device that is distributed for use within that facility or a hospital would be exempted from the requirement to hold an establishment licence.

These proposed amendments are intended to improve the effectiveness of recalls in Canada and to strengthen voluntary recall requirements to minimize the exposure of Canadians to defective or unsafe drugs and medical devices. The amendments would also address recommendations in the independent investigators’ Final Report — Review of Health Canada’s Actions in the Recall of Alysena™ 28 (http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ahc-asc/pubs/hpfb-dgpsa/ 2013-alysena-recall-rappel/index-eng.php) by further clarifying existing recall requirements to establish clear responsibilities for industry on the conduct of a recall.

The proposal to require a health care facility, other than hospitals, that distributes medical devices outside of its facility to obtain an establishment licence is intended to better manage the risk associated with the distribution of these devices.

Health Canada will continue to engage interested stakeholders on the development of the regulatory proposals supporting Vanessa’s Law. However, there will be an opportunity for Canadians and all interested stakeholders to comment on the full proposals when these proposals are prepublished in the Canada Gazette, Part I.

Comments can be provided within 30 days of the date of this notice of intent to the Office of Legislative and Regulatory Modernization, Policy, Planning and International Affairs Directorate, Health Products and Food Branch, Health Canada, Holland Cross, Tower B, 5th Floor, Address Locator: 3105A, 1600 Scott Street, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9, LRM_MLR_consultations@hc-sc.gc.ca (email).
