Pandemic has been striking the world and several countries are facing shortages of disinfectants, sanitizers and other necessary products. Canada is one of those countries which is facing a shortage in hand sanitizers. Canada implemented measures to compensate the shortage in sanitizers.
One of the measures is interim expedited licensing approach for production and commercialization of hand sanitizers. This approach will be in place until 31st March 2021 and existing stock can be exhausted. Health Canada mentioned specific submission requirements, GMP and ADR reporting.
