About this Webinar

The Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) make Canada’s food system safer by focusing on prevention and allowing for faster removal of unsafe food from the marketplace. Although the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations came into force on January 15, 2019, certain requirements are being phased in over the following 12 to 30 months.

New regulations, which will go into effect July 15, 2020, require certain businesses to comply with new labelling requirements, and have a Preventative Control Plan (PCP) in place. Make sure your business is ready. Attend this webinar to learn more about the requirement being enforced over the coming months, including:

  • Licenses
  • Traceability and labelling
  • Preventative Control Plan
  • Collecting the required documents and information

Who Should Attend?

Mid-size and small Food importers/exporters and manufacturers selling across Canadian provinces and territories in the non-registered food sector.
