Natural Product Number (NPN)
After Health Canada assesses your product and decides it is safe, effective and of great quality, it issues a product license along with a Natural Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM). This 8-digit identifier number must appear on the principal display panel of the NHP label. The natural product number on the label indicates that Health Canada has reviewed and approved the health product. Acquiring an NPN is mandatory to enter the Canadian market.
