CFIA Consultation on Canada-US Regulatory Cooperation Council

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is launching a new web-based consultation tool to gather feedback from stakeholders on current Canada-United States Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) work plans and solicit input on future opportunities.

Canada and the United States are working together to align regulatory approaches between the two countries where possible. Under the Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC), the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) works with its counterparts in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United States Food & Drug Administration (USFDA) in areas of plant health, animal health, meat inspection and food safety.

Stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on the work plans that impact them, and provide input on future opportunities until October 31, 2017.

Information gathered in this consultation period will help inform the development of the next iteration of RCC work plans for food safety, meat inspection and certification, animal health, and plant health.
