NHPD Posts New Documents

Canada's Natural health Products Directorate has posted several documents on the Health Canada website.

The first, a reminder that the compliance date for Priority 5 natural health products (NHPs) has passed (January 1, 2008), involves vitamins and minerals, whereby Priority 5 NHPs that present an unacceptable risk to health or that have not been issued a submission number by January 1, 2008, will be subject to compliance action.

The second document is a post-licensing guidance document which among other things deals with making changes to the product after a license has been awarded, and Health Canada has added a stop sale provision and a suspension and cancellation provision have been included in the post licensing scheme.

The third and final document represents a revised application for International Trade Certificate for Natural Health Products. (http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/prodnatur/applications/int-certificat/doc/itc_cci-pol_sum-som_e.html#1)
