Drug Companies Now Required to Report Medication Shortages


Health Canada is now requiring drug companies to report  medication shortages and discontinuations on DrugShortagesCanada.ca. Manufactures will be reporting:

  • anticipated drug shortages;
  • discontinuation of a drug six months in advance; and
  • any previously unreported shortage(s) within five days of learning about it.

A new, independent website, www.drugshortagescanada.ca, is replacing the industry-run website, drugshortages.ca.
