International Trade Certificate

International Trade Certificate (ITC) is a standard practice among various countries for requiring an ITC to get any Natural Health Product (NHP) imported into their jurisdiction. ITC provides information to the exporting country about the regulatory status of a Canadian NHP or Canadian manufacturer, labeller, packager. It confirms that the product or site caters to the requirements of the Natural and Non-Prescription Health Product Directorate.

Why International Trade Certificate (ITC) Is Important

The value of NPN (Natural Product Number) for a Natural Health Product without any doubt is beneficial for entering the international market. Most of the countries recognize and adhere to the regulatory program of Canada both in terms of registration and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice). Having said that some countries require proof of these Canadian regulatory requirements. That’s where an International Trade Certificate comes in handy. 

An ITC provides one of three functions:

  1. An ITC certifies the valid status of NHP being exported that it has an NPN license.
  2. An ITC is issued for proof of attests to the site status of the manufacturer, packager, or labeller.
  3. An ITC can be used for proof of an NHP site license or a homeopathic medicine (DIN-HM) and its site license activity.

Note that ITCs are only distributed to Canadian based companies with a valid NPN or site license.
