Notice to interested parties — Amendment to exclude 123I-ioflupane from the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and the Narcotic Control Regulations
This notice provides interested stakeholders with the opportunity to comment on Health Canada's intent to exclude 123I-ioflupane from the application of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) and the Narcotic Control Regulations (NCR). The CDSA provides a legislative framework for the control of substances that can alter mental processes and that may cause harm to the health of an individual or to society when diverted or misused.
123I-Ioflupane is a cocaine derivative and is captured under Schedule I of the CDSA and the schedule to the NCR, under their listings for coca, its preparations, derivatives, alkaloids and salts, including coca leaves, cocaine and ecgonine.
123I-Ioflupane is the active ingredient in the diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals DaTscan™ and DaTSCAN™, which have legitimate medical use in adults to differentiate parkinsonian syndromes from essential tremor conditions. DaTscan™ and DaTSCAN™ are available in over 30 countries worldwide, including the United States, Israel, and the European Union.
In 2015, the United States removed 123I-ioflupane from its Schedule II listing and from the application of all the other schedules of the U.S. Controlled Substances Act due to its low potential for misuse.
DaTscan™ and DaTSCAN™ are not currently marketed in Canada. An assessment of 123I-ioflupane conducted by Health Canada found no evidence of misuse in Canada and an extremely low risk of diversion for illicit purposes.
This proposal would remove controls imposed by the CDSA and the NCR on activities with 123I-ioflupane. As a radiopharmaceutical, this substance would still be highly regulated in Canada under the Food and Drugs Act, the Nuclear Safety and Control Act and their respective regulations.
The publication of this notice in the Canada Gazette, Part I, begins a 30-day comment period. Anyone interested in this process or anyone who has comments about this notice should contact the Office of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs, Controlled Substances Directorate, Healthy Environments and Consumer Safety Branch, Health Canada, by mail at Address Locator: 0302A, 150 Tunney's Pasture Driveway, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Notice of changes to Health Canada's Master File fees
A Master File (MF) [previously referred to as Drug Master File or DMF] provides information about specific processes or components used in the manufacturing, processing, or packaging of a drug.
The MF process was internally audited in 2015, which resulted in several recommendations to improve and streamline the registration and review of these files by Health Canada. These process changes are documented in the Guidance Document: Master Files (MFs) — Procedures and Administrative Requirements.
In 2016, Health Canada consulted on the proposed MF fees through the 2016 Master File Cost Recovery Consultation. As the MF process is voluntary and represents solely a private benefit, the non-regulatory charges are fully cost recovered.
Notice is hereby given that the Minister of Health, under the Ministerial Authority to Enter into Contract, hereby updates the fees that are payable for services related to Master Files, beginning May 1, 2017. These fees will continue to be updated annually, with an automatic 2% increase to correspond with the Drug Program's regulatory user fees.
The current fees and the fees updated as of May 1, 2017, are listed below.
Any inquiries or comments about the updated fees can be directed to Marilena Bassi, Director, Bureau of Policy, Science, and International Programs, Therapeutic Products Directorate, Health Products and Food Branch, 613-957-6451 (telephone), Policy_Bureau_Enquiries@hc-sc.gc.ca (email).
