What our NPN-certified product means for you

All natural health products (NHPs) sold in Canada are subject to the Natural Health Products Regulations, which came into force on January 1, 2004.

The Regulations help give Canadians access to a wide range of natural health products that are safe, effective and of high quality.

The Natural Health Products Regulations were created after many consultations with Canadian consumers, academics, health care practitioners and industry stakeholders. They address Canadians’ concerns about NHP availability and safety, as well as the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health’s 53 recommendations on the regulation of natural health products (NHPs) in Canada.

To be legally sold in Canada, all natural health products must have a product licence, and the Canadian sites that manufacture, package, label and import these products must have site licences.

Good Manufacturing Practices make sure proper standards and practices for the testing, manufacture, storage, handling and distribution of natural health products are met. Good Manufacturing Practices for NHPs cover:

  • product specifications
  • premises
  • equipment
  • personnel
  • sanitation program
  • operations
  • quality assurance
  • stability
  • records
  • sterile products
  • lot or batch samples
  • recall reporting

Good Manufacturing Practices are meant to ensure safe and high quality products while giving manufacturers, packagers, labellers, importers and distributors the flexibility to implement quality systems appropriate for their product lines and businesses.
