An International Trade Certificate (ITC) is a formal, unique document that contains information regarding the regulatory status of a natural health product (NHP). ITCs are also issued to demonstrate that a facility which manufactures, labels, or packages NHPs complies with Canadian Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
When expanding into a global distribution market, ITCs serve to assure foreign regulatory authorities that NHPs exported to their countries comply with Canada’s strict Natural Health Product Regulations, and that the facilities which manufacture, label, or package NHPs comply with Canadian Good Manufacturing Practices. Health Canada has authorized CHFA to issue ITCs and provided this letter which states that CHFA attests to Health Canada's criteria for issuing ITCs.
As a benefit of membership, CHFA Members can be confident in CHFA’s reliable, timely service and successful track record in preparing ITCs for export to more than 50 countries.
