The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is responsible for the safety of food products sold in Canada by enforcing the recently implemented Safe Foods for Canadians Regulation (SFCR). It is a compilation of 14 sets of regulations governing safety of human foods and slaughter animals sold and traded. Though the requirements of SFCR are similar to the Preventive Control Rules for Human Food of USFDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), SFCA is distinctly different, with unique licensing requirements, its own set of preventive control plans and traceability provisions for both licensed and non-licensed foods.
What do you need to know about SFCR and compliance requirements? Join EAS and independent consultant Rama Narasimhan for a look at the Safe Foods for Canadians Regulations and specific compliance challenges differentiating it from FSMA.
We’ll start with an overview and then go in-depth with key examples highlighting questions and their solutions.
