Canadian manufacturers of natural health products, effective January 1, 2006, are required to be licensed under by Canadian legislation under the NHP Directorate. Licensing also certifies Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) from the NHP licensees. This new NHP barrier to entry in the Canadian Natural Health and Wellness market place offers Omega a unique competitive advantage in the production of its Super Antioxidant product Protovin™ in Canada and Internationally.
