Whether you manufacture, import or sell products in Canada, you need to comply with the Health Canada regulatory requirements concerning Incident Reports.
An Incident Report is a formal notification of any adverse event involving a consumer product that either resulted, or may have resulted, in negative health or safety concerns, including death.
Incident Reporting is a requirement of any manufacturer, distributor, or retailer that becomes aware of a health or safety incident involving a consumer product.
Incident Reports enable Health Canada to identify potential dangers and address hazards. They must be submitted to Health Canada within two days of the incident, as required by the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.
