As you may know, the Natural Health Product (NHP) Raw Material Policy was recently removed from the Natural Health Products Directorate (NHPD) website in order for it to be revised. In keeping with the Natural Health Products Directorate’s (NHPD) Risk-Based Approach (RBA) to the regulation of NHPs, the NHPD is now proposing to replace the NHP Raw Material Policy with the Guidance Document to Assist in Distinguishing between Natural Health Products and Ingredients.
The NHPD welcomes your comments on the draft guidance document. Please submit your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 17th, 2010. All comments received during the 30-day comment period will be considered in finalizing the guidance document. Once all stakeholder comments have been considered and the document finalized, it will be posted on the NHPD website.
