If you sell medical devices in Canada, you'll probably need a license to do so. Health Canada (the Food and Drug Administration in Canada) are two types of licenses.

Health Canada Medical Device Establishment License (MDEL, operating license for medical devices)

Manufacturers of medical devices in Class I and in-vitro diagnostics have a Medical Device Establishment License (MDEL) apply if they wish to market directly and not through a Vetriebshändler their products in Canada. If you sell your products through distributors in Canada, they must have a MDEL. Distributors and importers of medical devices and in vitro diagnostic medical need, regardless of the product classification have a MDEL.

NOTE: For manufacturers of medical devices of classes II, III and IV and of IVD no MDEL is required.

Health Canada Medical Device License (MDL)

Manufacturers of Class II, III and IV shall have in Canada, a Canadian medical device license (MDL). The MDL is a product-specific permission and should not be confused with the MDEL. The MDEL is a permit for the company or the distributor or importer. The Canadian Medical Device License (MDL) is comparable to the U.S. FDA 510 (k) process. The MDL procedure will be faster than the FDA method generally for Class II, about the same rate for Class III and IV runs complicated for Class
