The Natural Health Products Regulations (NHP Regulations) do not specify whether raw materials are or are not included in the definition of a natural health product (NHP). The NHP definition mentions neither raw material (e.g., ginger root that has just been harvested) nor finished product (e.g., encapsulated ginger that is packaged and labelled for the consumer). The NHP Raw Material Policy clarifies at which point a material becomes an NHP, and therefore when product and site licensing requirements are triggered.
