Manufacturing code for natural health and supplementary products

All manufacturers of natural health and supplementary products will have to be licensed, including manufacturers outside of New Zealand.  Compliance with the code of manufacturing practice will be a condition of the licence.

Some very small-scale low-risk manufacturing may be exempt from licensing.  

A Code of Manufacturing Practice will be developed.  The Code will set standards for manufacturers that are proportionate to the risk posed by the type and scale of manufacture proposed.  For instance if you are manufacturing a product with bee-derived ingredients, it likely presents a higher risk than a product made of dried plant matter, because of the risk from allergens.
