If you are one of over 1900 companies given a COVID Temporary Site License to manufacturer, package, label, or import Alcohol-based Hand Sanitizers (Natural Health Products) earlier this year, that license is set to expire in March 2021. With vaccine trials well underway and showing excellent outcomes so far, this March 21 deadline will likely not be extended. If you plan to apply for a Permanent Site License, our recommendation is that you consider submitting your profile now, before the other 1900 companies get ahead of you! Your application will be an entirely NEW submission. While the process to apply is similar to what you provided for your temporary COVID license, the documentation required will be more involved. Your approval from NNHPD will take 35 – 65 days. You will need to provide more detailed information on your entire quality management system and that of your foreign manufacturers. This will include details about premises, operations, quality inspection protocols, recall, and adverse event protocols, and stability data to support your shelf life and expiry date.
