This voluntary program will be administered by North American Compendiums (NAC) and provides that a ‘notifier’ (such as our company) to apply for notification numbers. NAC will determine if a submitted product meets the requirements as established by Health Canada. Notification Numbers (NN) will be issued for those products that qualify.

Once a product is approved, we will attest to quality of the product and strict adherence to Good Manufacturing Practices.

Health Canada has developed a List of Substances and guidance documents for labelling requirements and health claims, and will audit the program as required.
