Ancillare, the industry leader in Clinical Trial Ancillary Supply Chain (CTASC™), obtains authorization to distribute medical devices in Canada.
Horsham, Pa. — January 14th, 2021. Global Clinical Trial Ancillary Supply Chain (CTASC™) leader Ancillare, LP, the first and only Life Sciences company dedicated to Ancillary Supply Chain for Phase I-IV clinical research, announced it obtained its Medical Device Establishment License (MDEL) in August of 2020 and is now actively importing medical devices in support of Phase I-IV clinical trials.
The MDEL, which allows for the import and sale of medical devices, will serve to strengthen Ancillare’s global distribution network.
Ancillare applied for the MDEL in response to the Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) Single Window Initiative, which enacted new licensing requirements for importers of medical devices and other goods under Health Canada jurisdiction. The license demonstrates compliance to Health Canada’s Medical Device Regulation (MDR), and gives Ancillare the ability to import registered medical devices for clinical use in Canada.
“With an MDEL, Ancillare can better support our Sponsors by facilitating medical device imports,” said Dr. Joanne Santomauro, Chief Executive Officer. “Maintaining regulatory knowledge and compliance is among our key value offerings, and represents just one example of our ongoing efforts to strengthen Ancillare’s global distribution capabilities.”
