In this food safety webinar attendees will learn the broad overview of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulation (SFCR) standard to process, import or export foods for Canada covered with background, new revisions, enhanced regulations, tools and portal for compliance.
Safe Food for Canadians Regulation (SFCR) kicked off January 2019 after several long gazette comment periods by the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency). This session delivers a broad overview of the standard and covers resources for compliance.
Under this regulation many food companies are now required to register for a license, with many aspects mimicking the new FDA FSMA requirements. The new portal, recordkeeping and compliance requirements as well as staggered deadlines will be presented. Exclusions, responsible parties, and import and export items will be covered in this session.
Anyone operating or bringing food products into Canada or exporting needs to be aware of new regulation requirements, licensing and compliance.
