  • Integration strategies with existing food safety systems
  • Conclusions
  • Q&A

Background
The new Safe Food for Canadians regulation(SFCR) consolidates the authorities of the Fish Inspection Act, the Canada Agricultural Products Act, the Meat Inspection Act, and the food provisions of the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act. The SFCR Regulations make our food system even safer by focusing on prevention and allowing for faster removal of unsafe food from the marketplace. Under these regulations, as of January 15, 2019, new licensing, preventive control and traceability requirements apply to food businesses that import or prepare food for export or to be sent across provincial or territorial boundaries.

Target Audience
The webinar is aimed at food companies that are covered by Safe Food Canada Regulation, wishing to upgrade to the Canadian Regulations from an existing food safety management system such as a GFSI scheme.
