OTC Drug Identification Number License (DIN)

Quality Smart Solutions prepares DIN submissions for over-the-counter (OTC) products that follow Health Canada published monographs: Labeling Standard, Category IV, or Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (i.e. NSAIDs).

A Drug Identification Number (DIN) is a computer-generated eight digit number assigned by Health Canada to a drug product prior to being marketed in Canada.

DIN products cannot be sold prior to license issuance. In addition, Health Canada has a fee structure associated with DIN submissions. Whether you have a national brand or a private label drug that you are planning to launch in Canada, we are your solution to DIN submission filings for non-prescription drugs.
