All health products that contain active ingredients of natural health products are called Natural Health Products (NHP) in Canada. These products are used to restore or maintain health. They come in different dosage forms, such as tablets, capsules, gels, to name a few. Many consumer products for everyday use, such as toothpaste, shampoos, mouthwashes, antiperspirants, and facial products are also classified as NHPs in Canada. 

Fast Facts – More than 70% of people in Canada consume natural health products, like herbal products, vitamins, and homeopathic medicines, according to the Government of Canada (canada.ca). NHPs in the country are expected to currently surpass $5 billion in sales.  Canada has become an appealing market for brands that meet product registration requirements and other provisions outlined by Health Canada to sell Natural Health Products.

Watch a video where Andrew Parshad, Founder, Quality Smart Solutions, explains the three legal requirements to sell NHP’s in Canada.

Why the Need for NHP Regulatory Solutions

All Natural Health Products (NHP) sold in Canada are subject to NHP Regulations. Whether you deal with manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or importing NHPs for commercial sale in Canada, you need to meet NHP Regulations. Once the product is approved by Health Canada, a NPN (Natural Product Number) or DIN-HM (Homeopathic Medicine Number) licence consisting of an eight digit identifier is issued. The NPN licence is your ticket to sell NHPs in Canada.  Call us today and obtain your NPN with Quality Smart Solutions, Canada’s leading consulting firm for licensing natural health products.

Health Canada Compliance

Health Canada assesses the product and determines whether it is effective and safe to be used as over-the-counter products.

Label Compliance

NPN must appear on the label to let consumers know the product has been reviewed and approved by Health Canada.

Ecommerce Growth

Retailers such as Walmart, Amazon, and others ask for proof of NPN licence issuance to sell NHPs through their platforms and stores.

International Expansion

Many countries recognize Canada's regulatory standards and NPN licence may be equivalent to or expedite licensing in their jurisdiction.
