The Patented Medicines Prices Review Board has released revised proposed guidelines for consultation until July 20, 2020. These guidelines are to accompany the revised Patented Medicines Regulations that are scheduled to come into force January 1, 2021.

These revised guidelines follow earlier guidelines published in fall 2019 and subsequent comments. The Regulations were supposed to come into force on July 1, 2020 but were delayed for COVID related reasons (see Order in Council 2020-0413).

The PMPRB will host two public webinars and three research webinars during the consultation period.

[Update July 8 РConsultation deadline extended to August 4 in view of the decision 2020 FC 725  invalidating part of the proposed guidelines.]
