Health Canada is taking steps to boost supply of hand sanitizer
As Canada reports almost 750 cases of COVID-19, the national healthcare service called the demand for these products "unprecedented" and "urgent."
Temporarily, Canada will allow the sale of items that "may not fully meet labelling, licensing or packaging requirements," such as products that are labelled only in English.
The products may also be labelled with a foreign identifier number instead of a DIN or NPN.
Health Canada also says that it will expedite approvals and licensing of these products, giving Canadians quicker access to them.
