Canadian user fees

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CCTFA) expects that recently announced user fees for drugs will eventually be extended to cosmetics as well. CCTFA is working in conjunction with the Nonprescription Drug Manufacturers Association and the Canadian Drug Manufacturers Association to present the Canadian Drugs Directorate with a combined industry response to user fees. The Drugs Directorate recently announced that it plans to begin levying user fees for the "authority to market drugs." Scheduled to go into effect in late 1994 or early 1995, the fees will translate to $500 per OTC drug and $1000 per prescription drug. Charges to be established at later dates include fees for the manufacture, import or distribution of drug products, as well as for drug evaluation, file maintenance and adverse drug reaction monitoring
