NHP Site Licenses
All companies in Canada who want to manufacture, package, label or import a natural health product for sale must have a site licence (SL) that has been issued by Health Canada. Foreign sites performing these activities must be listed as approved foreign sites on a Canadian Company’s Site License.
It is a violation of the Canadian Food and Drugs Act (FDA) for foreign companies to ship products directly to retailers in Canada. A firm in Canada must be licensed as the designated importer and this Canadian firm is responsible for ensuring compliance with the NHP Regulations for Site Licensing and GMPs.
