Our Focus: Compliance to Health Canada & CFIA Regulations

Health Canada regulations consultingSince 1999, our focus has been assisting small- and mid-sized organizations with their Quality Assurance (QA) and Regulatory Affairs (RA) requirements under numerous Health Canada & CFIA Acts & Regulations.  ICS Inc. has assisted countless developers, manufacturers / fabricators, packagers, labellers, testers (labs), distributors and importers / exporters.

Our focus is on the pharmaceutical, natural health product (NHP) / dietary supplement, cosmetic, food, consumer chemical, medical device, and cannabis (medical marijuana) industries. This is primarily in two major areas:

1.       Quality Assurance (QA) regulations / programs such as: GMP / cGMP, GLP, GCP, GPP, ISO 9000, ISO 13485, ISO 14000, ISO 17025, and HACCP / ISO 22000;

2.       Regulatory Affairs (RA) services such as regulations relating to:

a. Product registrations (DINs & NHPs);
b. Cosmetic Notifications (CNs)
c. Label & marketing material compliance;
d. Facility registrations & renewals such as: Drug establishment licence (DEL) & NHP site licence (SL) applications / renewals.

3.       Other Services: such as

a. technical research & writing;
b. being the Importer of Record (IoR) for foreign companies wishing to import into Canada, but don’t have a contract logistics warehouse.
c. sourcing: raw materials (RMs), packaging materials (PMs), active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), and production or testing equipment;
d. sourcing contract manufacturers & quality control labs.

4.        We won’t offer lab services. Our focus is on Consulting – not performing testing, as this could be perceived as a conflict of interest. Please see our web page explaining our Policy on this.

Why use a consultant?
