Evidence for Homeopathic Medicines

Natural Health Products Directorate, 2006

The Natural Health Products Regulations require all homeopathic medicines to have a licence before being sold in Canada. Licence holders are issued a product number which must appear on the label of their product. The product number for homeopathic medicines is preceded by DINHM. To obtain a DIN-HM, a Product Licence Application (PLA) form must be completed by applicants. These applications are assessed by the Natural Health Products Directorate (NHPD), which is responsible for issuing product licences for all natural health products (NHPs). The NHPD uses evidence submitted by applicants to critically assess the safety, efficacy and quality of NHPs prior to approving them for sale in Canada. The legal requirements for NHPs in Canada are found in the Regulations. This guide is based on the Regulations and is intended to be used as a tool when applying for a product number (DIN-HM) for a homeopathic medicine.
