Ottawa report: Bureau of Drug Quality Assessment
Canadian Pharmaceutical Journal 1979 Oct; 112:293-294


The role and function of the Canadian Bureau of Drug Quality Assessment and its Quality Assessment of Drugs (QUAD) Program are discussed. The role of the Bureau of Drug Quality Assessment is to ensure the pharmaceutical quality of prescription and ethical drugs and to gain the confidence of health professionals, governments and the population concerning these drugs. The QUAD Program was implemented as part of the government’s goal to reduce the cost of drugs to the public by providing members of the health professions with information that would enable them to prescribe and dispense drugs of quality with due consideration for cost. Responsibilities of the Manufacturing Facilities and Control Division and the Product Quality Division are reviewed.
