Canada acts on Implant Files

Canada’s national health authority has announced a three-pronged medical device safety overhaul in response to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalist’s Implant Files investigation.
Health Canada says the new measures are designed to improve the safety, effectiveness and quality of medical devices.

It intends to target how devices get on the market, the monitoring of devices already in use, and the provision of patient information.

Canada says it will align the ‘’investigational testing’’ of devices more closely with those of pharmaceuticals.
