NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCTS


NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCT REGISTRATION

Natural health products are issued a product licence if the application is determined to meet regulatory requirements. Each natural health product approved to be marketed is assigned a Natural Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM).

All products regulated as natural health products must be registered, labelled, and sold in accordance with the NHP regulations. MEDERA can prepare a full range of NHP submissions including:

  • Traditional Herbal Medicines
  • Homeopathic Products
  • Compendial Submissions
  • Non-Compendial Submissions
  • Product License Amendments
  • Product License Notifications

All new products that meet the definition of an NHP must be registered with Health Canada. These products must be labelled in accordance with NHP labelling requirements and have an NPN (Natural Product Number) on its label in order to be sold in Canada.

One of the key differences between NHP Submissions and OTC drug submissions is that NHPD is involved in the process of reviewing and approving your finished product specifications. Failure to comply with NHPD requirements for finished product testing can result in costly delays with the submission approval timelines. Non-compliance with NHPD expectations for finished product specifications can result in costly delays in finished product testing.

Do not waste your time trying to navigate the requirements for NHPs. At MEDERA we have a range of NHP consulting solutions to offer. MEDERA can expedite preparation of your submissions and help you secure a submission control number.
