Registering bogus products with NNHPD of Health Canada

Posted 16 March 2015

Marketplace, an investigative television program shown on CBC (Canadian broadcasting corporation) applied for approval to market a homeopathic remedy they named “Nighton” to be used to treat fever and pain in infants and children. However the product was bogus. The program shows how easy manufacturers can register bogus products with  the Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate. (NNHPD) of Health Canada.

The background to this and the video is available on the blog Science-Based Pharmacy.

Science-Based Pharmacy  has been critical for years about the lack of oversight where the Natural Health Products Directorate (NHPD) is concerned. (The NHPD recently changed its name to the Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate. (NNHPD))
