Canadian Medical Devices Conformity Assessment System

The Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP) was developed in 2012 with the goal of creating a system where a single audit could be accepted across multiple jurisdictions. The program covers certification for ISO 13485 and also includes country-specific regulatory requirements, and provides many benefits to manufacturers including saving time and money. MDSAP is executed and utilized by a consortium of five regulatory bodies across five countries Australia (TGA), Brazil (ANVISA), Canada (Health Canada), U.S.A (FDA) and Japan (PMDA). If a manufacturer sells its device to all five participating countries, then the manufacturer must meet the QMS plus country-specific regulatory requirements of all five countries in order to be MDSAP certified.

Health Canada currently utilizes the CMDCAS (Canadian Medical Devices Conformity Assessment System) certificate per ISO 13485 as part of its medical device licensing process. MDSAP is not mandated by Australia, Japan, Brazil and the USA; however, as of January 1st 2019, Health Canada requires an MDSAP certificate from the manufacturer (or show proof that they are on track to be certified) to be able to market any medical devices in Canada and to maintain active device licenses.
