Subject: Policy on the Canadian Assessment of Medical Devices Conformity System (CMDCAS)

You will find attached a policy that addresses the requirements of quality systems under Article 32 of the Medical Devices Regulations. It describes how the Therapeutic Products Programme (TPP) intends to apply these requirements and the methodology to be used to recognize a registrar as proficient to perform a conformity assessment system as a medical instrument manufacturer as ISO 13485 and ISO 13488 standards.

In December 1999, the PPT has released for public consultation a draft policy under Q16R16 name: Policy on CMDCAS. Following this consultation period of 30 days, the PPT has received numerous responses that have considered when preparing the final version of the policy on CMDCAS. The most important change made by the TPP involves the removal of the requirement for the Canadian incorporation registrars. This revision means that the PTT now recognize the ISO 13485 and 13488 certificates issued by foreign registrars, as these have been accreditated for the scope of accreditation on the CMDCAS by the Standards Council of Canada.

PTT is currently developing guidance documents relating to methodologies Registrar Accreditation and registration of quality systems of medical device manufacturers. These documents will be available in the coming months.
