Common Drug Review (CDR) Submission Deadlines and CDEC Meeting Dates

The CADTH Canadian Drug Expert Committee (CDEC) typically meets on the third Wednesday of each month. Formerly CDEC met in every month except August and December (adding August or December meetings only if required), however in 2018 submission volumes have required that August and December meetings be permanently added to the CDEC meeting schedule.

The date on which a particular drug will be reviewed by CDEC is called the target CDEC meeting date. This date is dependent on the date a submission or a resubmission has its review initiated.
