Health Canadaâs proposal includes four key elements, which will help Canadians make informed decisions when selecting and using NHPs:
A Product Facts table: Important product information, such as warnings and directions for use, would be presented in a standardized table;
Clearly and prominently displayed label text: Rules would be introduced to improve NHP label legibility and readability (e.g., improved colour contrast and minimum font size requirements);
Labelling of food allergens, gluten and aspartame: Priority food allergens, gluten, and aspartame would be identified in the warning section of the label;
Modernized contact information: A manufacturer may display either an email address, telephone number or website instead of a postal address, as currently required.
This regulatory proposal to improve labelling for NHPs is a key component of the Self-Care Framework, initiated in 2016.
