Update on PMPRB Guidelines Modernization

Authored byLynn Ing

In its April 2019 NEWSletter, the Patented Medicine Prices Review Board (PMPRB) announced that the Steering Committee on Guidelines Modernization would hold its final meeting on May 13, 2019, to discuss both a draft report of its deliberations and the Working Group’s final report (released March 6, 2019). Once the Steering Committee’s report has been finalized and the regulatory amendments have been published in Part II of the Canada Gazette (expected this spring), the PMPRB will release its draft Guidelines for public consultation.
