The Suspension and Reformulation of the PMPRB Guidelines is Urgently Required: IMC Response to PMPRB 2022 Guidelines Proposals
Innovative Medicines Canada has submitted formal feedback to the Patented Medicine Prices Review Board’s (PMPRB) revised Draft Guidelines public consultation, calling for a suspension of the planned implementation to ensure meaningful stakeholder consultation and a thorough impact analysis.
This submission responds to PMPRB’s consultation on its proposed Guideline Monitoring and Evaluation Plan GMEP, deeming it premature.
The industry calls on the federal government to delay implementation of PMPRB regulatory changes until the COVID-19 pandemic has abated. IMC urges the federal government to work with our industry to build a more vibrant life sciences sector – one that enhances patients’ access to innovative medicines and tackles the sector’s critical issues.
The industry campaigns to remove experimental “new economic factors” from regulations – the source of most stakeholder concerns amid 2020 PMPRB changes. IMC encourages government to delay implementation of changes until the COVID-19 pandemic has abated.
