Welcome to the International Healthcare Technologies webpage.
Healthcare is a steadily growing industry with an approximate value of $117.4 billion exported from the U.S. in 2011, which has risen almost 26% since 2007. With the recent rapid growth of emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China there exists a tremendous opportunity for U.S. companies to successfully expand into the international arena.
The Healthcare Team of the U.S. Commercial Service is dedicated to enhancing the global competitiveness of the U.S. health industry, expanding its market access, and increasing exports. It accomplishes this through a variety of resources and services for U.S. companies such as Webinars, Gold Key and Platinum Key Services. The team, comprised of trade specialists from throughout the U.S. and from U.S. Embassies around the world, provides:
In-Depth Market Data and Statistics
Creating Market Entry Strategies
Identifying and Evaluating potential partners
Regulations and Customs Navigation
In addition to our many services, the Healthcare Team specializes in using both Domestic and International Trade Shows as turnkey events to help foster new business relationships and expand the international presence of U.S. firms by attracting country experts and international buyers.

Since January 1, 2004 all natural health products sold in Canada are subject to the Natural Health Products Regulations. U.S. companies must obtain product licences for their exported products, annex their manufacturing sites in the Canadian importers' site licenses, and meet specific requirements in order to successfully export to Canada. The licensing requirements apply to any person or company that manufactures, packages, labels and/or imports NHPs for commercial sales in Canada.
Industry experts will guide U.S. companies through the process of obtaining a product license and how to meet Health Canada requirements to successfully export NHPs to Canada.
