inspection by the CFIA

Why does CFIA require licensing.
Licensing would allow the CFIA to:
Identify businesses preparing food for inter-provincial trade, export,
or importing food into Canada
Authorize a person to carry out specified activities

Is CFIA still registering facilities.
CFIA will no longer be registering establishments, but will be issuing
licences to a person to carry out activities. Existing registrations will
transition to licences as they expire.  

How long would the license be valid.
For 2 years.

When should currently registered establishments
apply for a licence.
Registered establishments would be permitted to continue operating
under their current registration until it expires. Then they would be
required to obtain a licence.

What are the exemptions for licensing requirements.
Food additives
Packaging in the field of fresh fruit or vegetables that will be
manufactured, processed, treated, preserved or graded by a
licence holder in another province
Packaging, labelling and import of unprocessed foods intended to
be processed for use as grain, oil, pulse, sugar  or beverage (e.g.,
wheat, canola, lentils, green coffee beans, etc.)  

What do Canadian businesses need for importing food to
Canadian businesses that import food would need to:
Have a licence to import

Import food that is manufactured, prepared, stored, packaged and

Maintain procedures and processes for handling and investigating
complaints and recalls

They would have to export food that:
Has been manufactured, processed, treated, preserved, graded,
