Update on SFCR requirements for the manufactured food sector

Canada

May 04, 2020

Given these extraordinary circumstances, until further notice the CFIA will not prioritize compliance activities associated with the July 15, 2020 coming into force of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) for the manufactured food sector.

Any changes to the CFIA's prioritization of these compliance activities will be announced with adequate lead time once the situation allows.

Despite the above, affected businesses are encouraged to apply for a licence under the Safe Food for Canadians Act (SFCA). However, importers of manufactured food will generally not encounter delays or disruptions in their imports simply because of not having a Safe Food for Canadians licence yet. Domestic manufacturers can continue to operate while they apply for a licence.
