Acts and Regulations


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.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Natural Health Products Regulations of the Food and Drugs Act came into effect on January 1, 2004, and set out requirements for the manufacture, packaging, labelling, storage, importation, distribution and sale of natural health products in Canada, as well as clinical trials involving human subjects.
