Join us for our afternoon regulatory forum! We will be providing you with updates and information from speakers belonging to various departments and directorates within Health Canada.

Speakers from the Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate will provide information on the current Self-Care products Framework, Plain Language Labelling as well as updates on other timely projects underway within the department. Next, the Food and Drugs Act Liaison Office will address their role regarding natural health products (NHPs).

After the break, we will hear from the Food Directorate about supplemented foods, Health Canada’s Healthy Eating Strategy, and mandate priorities for the regulation of food. To end the afternoon, we will hear from a representative from the Regulatory Operations and Enforcement Branch. This session will focus on the current Compliance Monitoring Project and NHP manufacturing site visit findings, as well as some news from the recent performance NHP testing.

Attend this session to remain current on all of these important topics and find out what might be in store for the industry! As our industry continues to evolve, these sessions are a must-attend for any business in the natural health and food sector.
