Health Canada assesses NHPs for their safety, effectiveness and quality before they are authorized for sale in Canada. NHPs that have been licensed by Health Canada are labelled with either a Natural Product Number (NPN) or a Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM). Despite this licensing process, it is still possible to get unauthorized NHPs through retail stores or other routes (like the Internet and/or importing them from other countries).
