- Elimination of the need for Health Canada to review GMP evidence for the company submitted by multiple Canadian importers.
- Increased efficiency in assessment of the company’s license applications
- Ability for foreign manufacturers, packagers, and labels of natural health products to submit information regarding GMP compliance directly to health Canada.
