Following extensive stakeholder pre-consultation in 2012, the CFIA developed and released a series of subject-specific proposals for public review and comment regarding the modernization of Canada's federal feed regulatory framework:
- Feed ingredient Assessment & Authorization (Completed – Consultation closed December 2013);
- Feed Labelling (Completed – Consultation closed December 2013); and
- Feed Hazard Identification and Preventive Controls (Completed – Consultation closed July 25, 2014)
As a next step in its regulatory development process, the CFIA has prepared this Consolidated Proposal for further consultation with stakeholders such as suppliers of feed ingredients, commercial feed mills, feed distributors and feed retailers, livestock producers, industry associations, other government departments and international trading partners. The proposal seeks to:
- Integrate the first three modules to demonstrate how they will work together to provide a robust, risk-based regulatory framework;
- Add information on facility permissions (licensing/inspection/enforcement) to demonstrate how the principles of the modernized Integrated Agency Inspection Model (iAIM) will apply in a feed context; and
- Propose additional key regulatory requirements not addressed in the proposals/consultations to date.
On the basis of feedback received from consultation on these proposals, the CFIA will prepare a comprehensive regulatory proposal for publication in the Canada Gazette Part I in the coming months.
