Before a natural health product (NHP) can be sold in Canada, it requires pre-market approval. Since the Natural Health Products Regulations were put in place in 2004, SGS Nutrasource’s regulatory team has submitted thousands of Product Licence Applications (PLAs) to Health Canada’s Natural and Non-Prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD), with a 97% success rate.

Our team has received PLA approvals for single-ingredient NHPs and multi-ingredient products containing over 15 unique active ingredients. Our regulatory affairs personnel have experience completing and submitting all categories and variations of PLAs (e.g., Class I, II, and III) for a broad range of health indications, including:

  • Joint health
  • Memory
  • Fertility
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Immune health
  • Skin health
  • Weight management
  • Exercise/physical activity
  • Cognitive function
  • Various traditional use indications (e.g., Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine)

At SGS Nutrasource, we are always thinking one step ahead to anticipate challenges you may face and assist you every step of the way as you seek regulatory approval for your NHP.
