Natural Health Products Bill

Following the failure of an attempt to harmonise NZ natural product legislation with that of the restrictive Australian TGA regime, a more ‘natural products friendly’ set of regulations has been drawn up

HealthPost believes it is vital that the eventual legislation reflects the very low risk nature and history of natural product use, does not restrict choice or innovation, and does not add a significant layer of cost to those who take responsibility, unsubsidised, for their own health.

The Natural Health & Supplementary Products Bill is intended to help ensure:

  • Natural health products are safe to use
  • That the health claims made are true
  • That the products are made of and contain what their label says they do.

The Ministry of Health has developed a Draft Permitted Substances List where ingredients contained within natural health products can be searched. If an ingredient is not listed, a submission can be made to add it to the final list of permitted substances. The Draft Permitted Substances List can be found here.
