Our products are third-party tested in a licensed facility. What does that mean?
Third-party testing and certification is a quality control process where an independent organization analyzes a product to measure if it meets certain standards.
All natural health products (NHPs) sold in Canada are subject to the Natural Health Products Regulations, which came into force on January 1, 2004.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) signed an arrangement with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the Department of Health Canada (Health Canada) recognizing each other's food safety systems as comparable to each other.
Good manufacturing practices (GMP) ensure that drugs meet the quality standards appropriate to their intended use before they are sold. To ensure compliance with GMP regulations, the Health Product Compliance Directorate (HPCD) inspects establishments that fabricate, package or label, distribute, import, wholesale or test drugs. During these inspections, HPCD verifies GMP compliance with Part C, Division 2 of the Food and Drug Regulations. This is a requirement for issuing an establishment licence.
Health Canada Site Licensed
A site licence gives the licensee the authorization to manufacture, package, label or import natural health products in Canada. These activities must be carried out according to the good manufacturing practices outlined in part 3 of the Natural Health Product Regulations.
Products with a licence have been assessed by Health Canada and found to be safe, effective and of high quality under their recommended conditions of use. You can identify licensed natural health products by looking for the eight-digit Natural Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM) on the label.
