Health Canada has created an initiative to adopt a structured product monograph format to increase efficiency and provide Canadians with more relevant and concise drug product information. This effort will improve the treatment experience by making drug information easier for patients and prescribers alike to interpret.
This move to XML PM affects the product monograph preparation, electronic submission and approval process for human prescription drugs marketed, sold or distributed in Canada. This transition does not have any impact on human OTC drugs, veterinary drugs, natural health products and medical food and devices.
Voluntary submissions will be accepted as early as Spring 2021 with the required date of compliance expected to be published soon.
