MDL

The Canadian Medical Device License (MDL)
The Canadian Medical Device License (MDL) is required for manufacturers of Class II, III, and IV medical devices in Canada. The MDL is a product approval and should not be confused with the MDEL, which is a permit for the company or distributor or importer itself.
Canada's Medical Devices License (MDL) is comparable to the US FDA 510(k) process, except the process of securing a MDL is usually faster for Class II devices, about the same for Class III devices and more complicated for Class IV devices.
