Industry Canada has now enacted the amendments to the
Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) Regulations
(Regulations) in order to permit claims to compounds to be
listed against multiple drug combination products. The regulation
is dated June 18, 2015, and we understand that it is to be
published July 1, 2015. We attach a copy of the regulation and royal assent.
The Regulations published are in substantially the same
form as previously presented in the Notice of May 3, 2015. The
amendments include new section 3.2(1) and (2) which permit, the
resubmission of patent lists where a patent was deleted or was
refused to be added, during a specified period and on the basis of
the Viiv decision, within 30 days of the
Regulations coming into force.
In the event that a patent has not been listed or has been
deleted from the Patent Register, we recommend early review and
corrective action be taken expeditiously in advance of the 30-day
deadline of July 18, 2015.
