Industry Canada demands to mark all sensitive materials or products as private. The confidential agreements are considered and posted as official information. They are available online once the registration process is completed.
There are some approved papers that Industry Canada needs. The Radio Device Inventory acknowledgment is one of them. It is provided by the user with product data that can be published online. The applicant has to acknowledge in the document that any further alteration or changes that the product undergoes will be notified to Industry Canada.
The second document is the Canadian Representation Document. It plays as an in-country contact to advocate for the firm if any problem regarding product registration arises. The Canadian agent for US Corporations needs to have their company registration. They are not a personal member of the business. If the business is situated in Canada, it is feasible to serve as the Canadian representative and grant receipt.
