Natural Health Product Master File (NHP-MF)
An NHP-MF enables manufacturers or suppliers of raw materials or a medical ingredient to provide proprietary information directly to the Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) without having to disclose the information to the Product License Applicant.
The file contains manufacturing details and technical information, such as relevant safety, clinical studies, efficacy and quality data for a particular active ingredient. Once the NNHPD receives the file, it assigns a master file submission number. The file is referenced by a PLA to support the registration of a finished dose product.
