GMP/Site License

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a term that is recognized worldwide for the control and management of manufacturing and quality control testing of foods, pharmaceutical products, and medical devices.

The GMPs are designed to be outcome based, ensuring safe and high quality products, while giving manufacturers, packagers, labellers, importers and distributors of Natural Health Product’s (NHP’s) the flexibility to implement quality systems appropriate for their product lines and businesses.

Natural Products Number (NPN) License

All natural health products require a product license before they can be sold in Canada. Obtaining a license requires submitting detailed information on the product to Health Canada, including medicinal ingredients, source, potency, non-medicinal ingredients and recommended use. Once a product has been assessed and granted market authorization by Health Canada, the product label will bear an eight digit product license number preceded by the distinct letters NPN, or in the case of a homeopathic medicine, by the letters DIN-HM. This number on the label informs consumers that the product has been reviewed and approved by Health Canada for safety and efficacy.

International Trade Certificates (ITCs)

ITCs are documents that contain information about a product or site’s regulatory status in Canada, which serves to assure foreign regulatory authorities that NHPs exported to their countries can be marketed in Canada and meet the NHPR.

ITCs are issued for natural health products that have a valid Natural Product Number (NPN), which indicates that the Natural Health Product Directorate of Health Canada has reviewed the product’s license application and has deemed it safe and effective.

US FDA Food Facility Registration

US FDA registration is required for all companies that manufacture, process, pack, or store food, beverages, or dietary supplements that may be consumed in the United States. NutraLab is fully registered with the US FDA.

Vegetarian (Capsule) Certificate

NutraLab offers vegetable capsules that are suitable for vegans taking dietary supplements.

Halal Certificate

We manufacture natural supplements that are halal certified, which means that our products are permissible under Islamic law.

BSE Certificate

Our BSE certificate certifies that the gelatin capsules we use are free of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE). Our capsules also meet all the requirements of current European Pharmacopoeia (EP) and the United States Pharmacopoeia (SP).
