The Failure of Multi-Ingredient License Applications is Estimated to Become 80-90%

The current 60% failure rate for product license applications has mainly involved applications for single-ingredient products. This means that 60% of single ingredient NHPs have failed to pass Health Canada?s stringent safety and efficacy standards. The difficulty in meeting Health Canada?s standards increases with each ingredient. Because of this many are estimating that 80 to 90% of multi-ingredient NHPs will become illegal when their license applications fail.
