CFIA Asking for Feedback from Stakeholders: Regulations that Apply to US Trade

August 23, 2017

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has opened consultation, including on-line comments from stakeholders, about regulations that apply to trade with the United States.

The two countries have a joint council that aims to improve co-operation on regulations, aiming to improve economic competitiveness. The Canada-United States Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) has been in place since 2012.

Canadians work with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to develop annual joint work plans in the areas of animal health, food safety, meat inspection and certification, and plant health.

CFIA is inviting its stakeholders to provide feedback on the work plans that impact them, and to provide input on future opportunities until Oct. 31, 2017.
