We manufacture a wide range of products here at Eco-Med Pharmaceutical Inc.! From ultrasound products to first aid, in order to be sold in different regions around the world, we must apply for specific licences and certifications.
Our ultrasound gels are classified as Medical Devices in Canada, the EU and the US, which require site and product licenses.
Our hand sanitizer, rubbing alcohol and hydrogen peroxide products are classified as Natural Health Products in Canada and require an NPN (natural product number) and valid site licence to be legally sold. In the US, these products are considered OTC (over-the-counter) drugs and require us to uphold a Drug Establishment Licence and apply for an NDC (national drug code) to legally be sold in the US.
ISO 13485:2016 is a voluntary quality management program that includes strict requirements regarding our products, facility, employees, and SOPs (standard operating procedures). We undergo annual audits that verify all of our processes and documents are kept up to date and meet the medical standards for Canada, US and the EU. Many companies choose to forego this program due to cost and workload, but we believe this demonstrates our initiative to be a global leader in the industry, and illustrates our commitment to providing you with the best product.
