NHP Good Manufacturing Practices


Good Manufacturing Practices (NHP GMPs) are outlined in the NHP Regulations. The NHP GMPs are divided over four sections; each section of the NHP GMPs provides detailed guidance on Health ProcessCanada’s expectations for compliance.

  1. Places
  2. People
  3. Processes
  4. Products

“Places” covers premises and equipment and describes the requirements for ensuring that natural health products are not made or stored under conditions which could affect its quality.

“People” covers the requirements for personnel and quality assurance. Personnel appropriately trained by education and experience must be in charge of the Quality Assurance Department.

“Processes” covers the sanitation program and operations to ensure that procedures are in place to minimize adverse impacts on quality.

“Products” covers specifications, stability, samples, records, recall reporting, and sterile products.
