60.1. If the Conseil du médicament is informed that a medication on the list is out of stock, it shall notify the Board, which may temporarily authorize use of an alternative. A notice that the medication is to be replaced by an alternative is published on the Board’s website and comes into force on the date of its publication or any later date fixed in the notice. Publication of the notice on the Board’s website imparts authentic value to the notice. The notice is not subject to the requirements concerning publication and date of coming into force set out in sections 8, 15 and 17 of the Regulations Act (chapter R-18.1).
