Helping brand owners comply with Health Canada’s Plain Language Labelling Regulations
Health Canada recently introduced Plain Language Labelling (PLL) Regulations to improve the safe use of non-prescription drug products and reduce preventable harm from medication errors by making drug labels and packages easier to read and understand.
This Health Canada directive has staged implementation deadlines starting June 2017 with full compliance required by June 2021. It’s also expected natural health products will have similar guidelines drafted by 2019 with full compliance estimated for 2024.
