Review of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations and Preventative Control Plan

March 18, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Live Webinar Review of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations and Preventative Control Plan

Course Overview

The Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) came into force on January 15, 2019. This course will provide guidance to the food industry on the regulatory changes introduced by the SFCR. At the end of the course, participants will be able to understand the regulatory requirements that need to be met, apply for licence, identify and implement changes to company’s Preventative Controls to meet the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA’s) requirements.

Benefit of the SFCR:

For trading partners abroad, it means that they can continue to buy with confidence, knowing that food produced in Canada meets internationally recognized safety standards.

For industry, the SFCR’s outcome-based regulations mean innovation and the production of safer food. Businesses can better avoid costly recalls, be more competitive at home and abroad, and increase their growth potential by accessing an even greater number of international markets.
