The interim program called the Low Risk Veterinary Health Products (LRVHP) Notification Program has existed for the last several years as a third party program that was overseen by Health Canada. In mid-August 2017 it was announced that Health Canada will take over the program again effective November 13, 2017 replacing the LRVHP program. The program will continue to be administered by LRVHP until October 13 after which there will be a gap where new submissions will have to wait until the new program launches in mid November.
More details about this new VHP program is forthcoming. Check our news section for more details to come.
