CONTROLLED DRUGS AND SUBSTANCES ACT

Notice to interested parties — Proposed regulations amending the Narcotic Control Regulations, the Benzodiazepines and Other Targeted Substances Regulations, and the Food and Drug Regulations — Parts G and J to align, streamline and modernize the requirements relating to test kits

This notice provides interested stakeholders with the opportunity to comment on Health Canada’s intent to amend the Narcotic Control Regulations (NCR), the Benzodiazepines and Other Targeted Substances Regulations (BOTSR) and the Food and Drug Regulations — Parts G and J (FDR — Parts G and J) to align, streamline and modernize the authorization of test kits.

The NCR and FDR — Parts G and J define a test kit as an apparatus that contains reagent systems or buffering agents or both; that is used in the course of a chemical or analytical procedure for medical, laboratory, industrial, educational or research purposes; and the contents of which are not intended for administration to humans. The BOTSR define test kits in a slightly different, but substantially similar manner.

Test kits are essential in supporting the public health and safety of Canadians. Law enforcement agencies, such as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Canada Border Services Agency and Health Canada’s Drug Analysis Service laboratories, rely on test kits to determine whether the substances they seize contain controlled drugs or substances. Forensic laboratories use test kits for the analysis of biological samples for controlled substances.

Test kits containing controlled substances are authorized through registration of the product and issuance of a test kit number (TK number) pursuant to the various regulations under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA). Individuals may conduct activities with a registered test kit affixed with the TK number, including possess, provide, import and export without any other type of authorization under the CDSA.

A review of requirements related to test kits has shown inconsistencies and redundancies that require redress. Health Canada is considering amendments to the NCR, BOTSR and FDR — Parts G and J in order to modernize, streamline and align the requirements regarding test kits containing controlled substances in these regulations.

The following are examples of proposed changes to the provisions that are under consideration:
