RCC Webinar: “Good Manufacturing Practices” Health and Personal Care Products and Workplace Chemicals

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Office of International Programs is hosting a Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) webinar. See details below or go to http://trade.gov/rcc under “News and Events.”

Check out this backgrounder on the RCC’s workplan for Personal Care Products and Pharmaceuticals.  Actionplan.gc.ca also offers this, now likely dated, summary:

Increased regulatory cooperation in the area of health and personal care products and workplace chemicals will create efficiencies, reduce inspection duplication, enable products to be brought to market more quickly, facilitate trade, and lessen the potential for classification and labelling confusion. Specifically, the Joint Action Plan aims to enhance regulatory cooperation in these areas by implementing:

A common secure electronic submission system to allow industry applicants to submit documents to Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration;

Common monographs (information on product specifications and use) for over-the-counter drugs;

Mutual reliance on routine inspections of production facilities for drugs and personal care products; &

Common classification and labelling requirements for workplace hazardous chemicals.
