The Natural Health Products Directorate (NHPD) has changed its name to the Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) subsequent to its recently expanded mandate to include the oversight of non-prescription and disinfectant drugs in addition to natural health products (NHPs). Please note that we are currently modifying documents to reflect this change.

Natural Health Product Licence Application Form

NEW — Web-based Natural Health Product Licence Application Form

The web-based Natural Health Product Licence Application (web PLA) form is NNHPD’s latest version of the natural health product licence application form. It is designed to be accessed and completed online through an active internet connection and saved at any time to the user’s local workstation. This version allows in-form attestation to monographs and enables the population of monographs and other product-related information from the Natural Health Product Ingredient Database (NHPID). It also includes in-form help text for quick and easy access to guidance while completing the form.

Note: While the web PLA functions in most browsers, for best results, we recommend using either Firefox 54+ or Chrome 60+. The web PLA also requires you to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.
