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.

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).
