Natural Health Products Licensing

What is an NHP or NPN number?

A Natural Product Number or Natural Health Product License is an eight (8) digit numerical code assigned to each natural health product approved to be marketed under the Natural Health Products Regulations monitored by Health Canada. This number must appear on the product’s label and will let you know that the product has been reviewed and approved by Health Canada.

Why do you need it?

In order for any Natural Health Product to be sold in Canada, it must first undergo a pre-market review where it will be assessed for safety, efficacy, and quality. Evidence demonstrating this must be submitted to Health Canada by means of an individual product license application (one per product). Products which meet the required criteria will be authorized for sale and each issued a Natural Product Number (NPN).
