- Brian THORNTON, Spécialiste principal, Direction des Instruments Médicaux, Santé Canada – le Ministère fédéral canadien de la santé
With all of the changes that the Medical Devices Bureau is currently undertaking, and projects that are being worked on (e.g. MDSAP, GMDN, ToC, Regulatory Review of Drugs and Devices, etc.), there is a greater need than ever to develop a clear stakeholder engagement plan. Brian Thornton joined the Medical Devices Bureau last year to lead the development of this plan. Brian brings with him 20+ years of experience managing regulatory affairs in the medical device industry. He has excelled in developing strong relationships with his clients in order to facilitate compliance within the industry. Brian’s recent focus has been stakeholder engagement with the diverse group of Canadian medical devices stakeholders. Brian’s success in this area is due to his knowledge of the medical device industry and his ability to bridge the gap between Health Canada and its stakeholders.
