Assistance for Administrative Examinations | Shawn Buckley Explains

ASSISTANCE FOR ADMINISTRATIVE EXAMINATIONS In this fifteenth 1:33 minute video of a 21-part series, Shawn Buckley explains Section 17 of the Charter of Health Freedom, “Assistance for Administrative Examinations.” This section sets the requirement for manufacturers to cooperate with the examinations, showing records and allowing access where necessary. This is imperative for an effective regulatory environment. Yet, this section of the Charter of Health Freedom presents a major difference as compared to the Food and Drug Act: specifically educating those being regulated about their rights. The Charter explicitly discloses that this subsection does not apply if an inspector is looking for evidence to convict you based on their opinion that you have committed an offense. It is critical to expect cooperation from manufacturers so that there is no grey area when it comes to access for inspectors, but this section also protects the Constitutional rights of the regulated parties.

As the author of this standalone Act, Shawn Buckley makes clear the key features of each section. He breaks down the proposed legislation into language that everyone can understand. Stay tuned for the next clip in which Shawn will discuss how regulations will be determined under the Charter of Health Freedom.
