International Trade Certificates (ITC)

Expanding your Global NHP Sales? We can help you get your International Trade Certificates.

An International Trade Certificate (ITC) is a formal, unique document that contains information regarding the regulatory status of either a natural health product (NHP) or site (facility) in Canada. ITCs serve to assure foreign regulatory authorities that NHPs exported to their countries can be marketed in Canada in compliance with the Natural Health Product Regulations.
