The Health Canada Acne Therapy Monograph was updated on Jun. 25, 2021 to include specific acceptable dosage forms for both non-prescription drugs and Natural Health Products (NHPs) as well as an additional Directions for Use statement for aerosol and spray acne products. This is the most recent update since the last version published in December 2018.

As of the Jun. 25, 2021 effective date, all new Acne products must follow the revised Health Canada monograph labeling requirements and for existing products, these should be in transition to ensure compliance with the new monograph.
