Submitting new natural health products (NHPs) for sale and distribution in Canada can be an overwhelming process. Companies often wonder whether their product is an NHP, Food or Drug. Applications for NHPs must include both a product licensing, and a site licensing for all manufacturing sites involved in production of the product. Our experts are here to provide support as you step through the application process.

We will work with you to verify that your product meets the requirements of the Natural Health Products Regulations pertaining to the safety, efficacy, and quality of the product, along with ensuring that the product meets all labelling and packaging requirements. We facilitate the submission to Health Canada on your behalf.

A site license is issued to manufacturers, importers, labellers, and packagers of NHPs for sale in Canada. To obtain this license, a site must provide evidence that it has procedures and processes in place to meet the NHP standards of Canadian Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP). We can guide you through the application process, review your documentation, and submit the application on your behalf to Health Canada.
