Brain Scan

The objective of this webinar is to provide an overview of the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP), its objectives, and benefits, as well as a summary of the major changes to be considered by an audited organization while planning to implement MDSAP.

This session will explain the major changes and challenges that medical device manufacturers will encounter.


On December 4, 2015, Health Canada announced that it intended to implement MDSAP as the sole mechanism for manufacturers to demonstrate compliance with the quality management system requirements of Medical Devices Regulations.

MDSAP will replace the current Canadian Medical Devices Conformity Assessment System (CMDCAS) program, even when a manufacturer intends to sell only in Canada. A transition period began on January 1, 2017, on completion of the MDSAP pilot, and will last for two years. During this period, Health Canada will accept certificates issued under both CMDCAS and MDSAP. As of January 1, 2019, CMDCAS certificates will be invalid, and only MDSAP certificates will be accepted.

In this context, manufacturers already marketing medical devices in Canada, and/or in one of the other MDSAP jurisdictions (Japan, Brazil, USA and Australia), must assess their readiness for the transition to MDSAP.

  • MDSAP Audit Model
  • MDSAP Audit Time Calculation

  • MDSAP Non-Conformities Grading
  • Post audit timelines

This webinar will be presented by Mirela Boureanu, SGS Global Product Manager, MDSAP.

Target Audience

This webinar is aimed at:

  • Medical device manufacturers and organizations that are currently certified to ISO 13485 under CMDCAS and plan to transfer to MDSAP
  • Medical device manufacturers and organizations that sell or plan to sell in at least one of the five participating MDSAP jurisdictions and aim to obtain MDSAP certification

The webinar will also be relevant to medical device regulatory professionals who are involved with, or who have responsibility for, quality systems, regulatory affairs, product design or manufacturing activities. It will be conducted in English.
