The inspector completes the Establishment Task Profile by selecting verification tasks that are applicable to the establishment. This information is entered into the CVS database by the Responsible Inspector.

The Establishment Task Profile template is available in the CVS application and will include all verification tasks that may be applicable to the Establishment.

The Establishment Task Profile is completed/reviewed by the inspector annually at the same time as the operator's licence is renewed. The Establishment Task Profile is also completed by the inspector when:

  • a new establishment begins operation;
  • operations change in an establishment;
  • the workshift agreement changes;
  • program requirements change which impact the establishment; and
  • verification tasks are amended which impact the establishment.

The Establishment Task Profile must be approved by the Supervisor prior to inclusion into the CVS data base. Note: The supervisor must review and approve or reject the changes within 30 days of the changes being submitted. It is important to note that after 30 days the profile will revert back to the original state and the pending changes will be lost.

The Task Tracking Table is used by inspection staff to track the delivery of the verification tasks at each establishment. The Task Tracking table includes:

  • the establishment number;
  • the task name;
  • the task number;
  • the task frequency; and
  • the field to enter the applicable rating or code when each task is completed.

Note: Inspectors must ensure that in the case where the operator identified CCPs or other control measures are covered by specific verification tasks, the related verification task is used to verify the process and not task 1.1.08 CCP (Generic) task.

18.6.1 Scheduling and Completion of Verification Tasks

See MOP Chapter 1, section 1.4.2 for specific information regarding the CFIA inspection frequency for slaughter activities, processing activities and storage activities.

Inspectors, Supervisors and Managers must ensure that verifications occur at varied times and proportionately cover all periods of production at the establishment. Certain verification activities will require the inspector to be present at the establishment during periods of non-production i.e. sanitation shifts, pre-operational inspections etc.
