New Roll-Out of CFIA Food Export Web Pages – All Food Commodities
The following is provided by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
Please be advised that the CFIA is revising the food export web pages to better assist Canadian industry with export guidance. Our aim is to align all export activities of our current food programs under a single food program. This will allow the CFIA to transition the export requirements easily to meet the Safe Food For Canadians Regulations (SFCR) when they come into force.
The new export web pages will replace existing web pages on the CFIA food export web site. New sections of the Food Export web pages will consolidate information on how to export all food in general. All the foreign country requirements to export food will be in a single web page, as well as information related to export establishment lists, and special commodity or country considerations to take into account. Additionally, as information on export requirements is brought together, the CFIA will be better able to manage changes for all food commodities.
Please note, while the look and feel of the CFIA Food Export section will be different, food certification for export will still be under the same Canadian laws as they were prior to this change in layout. Furthermore, all specific food commodity manuals and materials will still be available to the inspectorate and/or public until further notice.
Additional information can be found on the Food Export main page on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website.
