R2D2 – Accelerated Pathway & New Device Guidances Workshop

February 14, 2019 – Toronto

CAPRA hosted a one-day consultation workshop for Health Canada to provide an update and receive feedback on new initiatives. Significant changes to the Priority Review Pathway under R2D2 called the Accelerated Review Pathway were discussed including: expanded product eligibility criteria for accelerated review; creation of conditions that will promote price competition and creation of a single accelerated review pathway, merging priority review and NOC/c streams.

New device guidances, Cybersecurity and Software as a Device, were discussed with respect to the mitigation and/or elimination of risk to patients due to cybersecurity vulnerabilities in medical devices. Specific topics included: Health Canada’s planned regulatory approach to medical device cybersecurity, relevant standards when designing, manufacturing and testing medical devices and license application changes.
