Title or Working Title of the Regulatory Initiative

Regulations amending the Feed Regulations (Modernization)

Description of the Objective

These proposed amendments would modernize the Feed Regulations in order to reduce overlap and redundancy, increase responsiveness to industry changes, address gaps, weaknesses and inconsistencies, and provide more clarity, flexibility and transparency to affected regulated parties. Feed is an integral component that underpins food production in Canada. Safe and effective feeds contribute to the production of healthy livestock and safe foods of animal origin for human consumption.

Enabling Act

Indication of Business Impacts

There may be business impacts. The "One-for-One" Rule and the Small Business Lens may apply.

Public Consultation Opportunities

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency completed cross-country consultations in Spring 2016 with affected stakeholders and conducted further targeted consultations with stakeholders regarding four technical documents to be incorporated by reference.

These proposed amendments will be pre-published in the Canada Gazette, Part I in Spring 2017. A public comment period of 75 days will be available for Canadians and other interested parties to provide feedback on the regulatory proposal.
