Consultation on proposed use of foreign decisions for livestock feed approvals in Canada

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is responsible for the approval or registration of livestock feeds, including feed ingredients, before they are manufactured, sold or imported into Canada.

CFIA is seeking comments on an alternative pathway they have created to facilitate the pre-market assessment process for the approval or registration of some feeds products which are already authorized by a foreign regulator.

Feedback is also requested on the proposed regulatory guidance document that outs the application process for this pathway: Feed approval or registration requirements for the acceptance of a foreign approval/authorization.

Comment period closes March 9, 2023.
