This is further to Health Canada’s regulatory changes related to Veterinary Health Products (VHPs) that will come into force on November 13, 2017 (See recent news). The new VHP Notification Program will be administered by Health Canada and replace our existing LRVHP Program.

Please note the following dates related to the transition to the new system:

Until October 13th, NAC will continue to administer the LRVHP.ca system and handle questions and concerns.

Between October 13, 2017 and November 13, 2017 Health Canada will be preparing the new Notification Program for VHPs.

All products that have a valid Notification Number as of October 13th, 2017 will have extra time to transition to the new system (18 months extra beyond November 13, 2017 coming into force - which is May 13, 2019).

October 13, 2017 is the last day that NAC will administer the LRVHP.ca

September 8, 2017 is the last day to submit new Notification applications under the existing program.

October 13, 2017 is the last day to renew Notification applications.

October 13, 2017 is the last day that the LRVHP.ca system will be able to receive any adverse events.

The current AER phone number will continue to operate until May 13, 2019.

Admissible Substance Applications currently in review which have not been completed will transition to the new system.

We will be automatically transferring all the files for your company to Health Canada. If for any reason you do not wish us to do this please advise Health Canada by August 25th.

If you have any questions please contact the LRVHP administrator at Health Canada.
