The database will consist of three main elements.
1. Lists of Inspections. The database will include general information (name, date, rating) on all medical device inspections since January 1, 2012 to present.
2. Initial Inspection Deficiencies provide a preliminary overview of the inspection findings and are published within 3 days of the inspection.
3. Inspection Report Cards offer plain language summaries of inspections and they are published within 30 days of the inspection. The Report Cards will include a detailed information such as information identifying the establishment, date of the inspection, inspection type and rating, etc.
For an up to date listing of medical device establishment licenses, or further information about Health Canada’s Regulatory Transparency and Openness Framework can be found on Health Canada’s website.
