The GMPs are designed to be outcome based, ensuring safe and high quality products, while giving manufacturers, packagers, labellers, importers and distributors of Natural Health Product’s (NHP’s) the flexibility to implement quality systems appropriate for their product lines and businesses.
NPN Product Licence Number
All natural health products require a product license before they can be sold in Canada. Obtaining a license will require submitting detailed information on the product to Health Canada, including: medicinal ingredients, source, potency, non-medicinal ingredients and recommended use. Once a product has been assessed and granted market authorization by Health Canada, the product label will bear an eight digit product license number preceded by the distinct letters NPN, or, in the case of a homeopathic medicine, by the letters DIN-HM. This number on the label will inform consumers that the product has been reviewed and approved by Health Canada for safety and efficacy.
