CFIA issues compliance guidance for exporting food to the U.S.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has issued a guidance document on how Canadian food businesses exporting to the United States can meet the United States Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) rules.

The Program requires U.S. importers to verify that food imported into the United States has been produced in a manner that meets applicable U.S. safety standards.

In order to comply, Canadian food manufacturers who process food for export will require a licence under the proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR).
