Doctor's Choice Brand: NPN Enforcement Is Here

NPN Enforcement Is Here

by Dr. Eldon Dahl, (ND) founder and CEO of Life Choice Ltd:
Manufacturer of The Life Choice And Doctor's Choice Brands

(Calgary, AB) As most health retailers know, all natural health products now require a NPN number to be legally sold. Whether we agree with the regulations for licensing or not, at the moment, this is the law and it will be enforced. Life Choice is not in agreement of having natural health products in a sub-class of drugs, but until this is changed, this is where we find ourselves.

The real issue here is being in compliance vs. not being in compliance: those not in compliance do not adhere to the labeling standard, meaning they can put any health claim on their bottle and in their advertisements while having no clinical backing or authority to use these claims. If not properly substantiated to be factual, these non-compliant manufacturers could be sued for deceiving the public with the claims made in their advertisements.

This creates a disadvantage for those who have their products licensed. They must state only the medicinal claims given for their formulations or risk losing their licensing. They must also put French and English warning and caution statements on their product labels. These licensing requirements cost money to implement, and give an unfair price advantage to those not in compliance who are selling their products at a lower price point.Again, Life Choice is not in agreement about having to put caution and warning statements on our labels; we do not feel they are required. We believe they are mandatory due to potential interactions between supplements and prescription drugs. However, if someone is under the direction of a natural health care provider, the need for prescription drugs would be eliminated and render such warnings unnecessary. Still, unless change comes through the justice system, the cards have been dealt and we must play the hand we have been given.
Health Canada’s current campaign is to remove all "unlicensed" dietary supplements from the market. Health Canada has hired 200 enforcement agents to ensure that products comply to the regulations. These agents have the power to remove products from store shelves, and it is assumed that they will do whatever it takes to see that the NHPD regulations are enforced, from the suppliers to the retailers. Also assumed is their legal ability to lay criminal charges against those who are perceived to not be compliant. This is their only legal option, because under our constitutional laws, federal government departments have only police powers.
While we do not subscribe to the principles upon which compliance is based, all Life Choice products are in fact NPN compliant, and we will continue to deliver the highest quality NPN-licensed products on the market.

Manufacturer Of The Doctor's Choice Brand Of Nutraceuticals Makes Corporate Responsibility A Priority

Manufacturer Of The Doctor's Choice Brand Makes
Strategic Planning And Corporate Responsibility A Main Priority

 
(Calgary, AB) For Life Choice, a nutraceutical manufacturer of both the Life Choice brand and Doctor's Choice brand of nutraceuticals, strategic planning and corporate responsibility is a priority.

As of September 1, 2014 all natural health products (NHP) must be licensed by Health Canada (HC) and issued a natural product number (NPN). Failure to comply with these new drug regulations means that the product being sold is being sold illegally and is subject to immediate confiscation - the parties involved; the retailer, the manufacturer and the supplier also open themselves up to possible future criminal and civil litigation.

For the consumer a confiscated product means less choice. It also means questioning the therapeutic and medicinal value of the product that has been removed from the shelf.

This development is not something that has occurred unexpectedly or spontaneously in the natural health industry. The discussion and subsequent legislation has been the topic of conversation for many years. It is just that the date of September 1, 2014 is the day of reckoning. It is the day that an additional 200 Health Canada inspectors hit the streets, visiting retailers to determine if the health products that they are selling meets the new mandatory requirements set by Health Canada.

Taking corporate responsibility seriously means strategically planning for the future. It means taking the necessary steps to ensure that your “mission statement” and reason for existence goes uninterrupted regardless of the external challenges that arise from changes in government legislation or social attitudes. For Life Choice’s founder and CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND, this meant staying focused on what was important; maintaining a brand of high quality professional, therapeutic medicines while maneuvering his company through uncharted "regulatory" waters.

Because Dr. Dahl was successful in meeting this challenge, all of the company’s products – the Life ChoiceTM brand and Doctor’s ChoiceTMbrand – were able to meet the new legal standards set by Health Canada, resulting in both brands becoming 100% legal and in full complicance of the new legislation.

At the "street level" just what is the significance? Well, for the consumer, it means they can purchase a Life Choice product with that the knowledge that it is professional, therapeutic and medicinal. For the retailer, it means that they can knowingly purchase a product for resale which they know is 100% legal and in full compliance with the new Federal legislation.
