PNTs (and/or products derived from them) to be imported into Canada are subject to the CFIA regulatory review under the Plant Protection Act and Regulations. PNTs (and/or the products derived from them) that have been authorized for unconfined release into the Canadian environment may not require an Import Permit. PNTs that have not been authorized for unconfined release into the Canadian environment require an Import Permit issued under the Plant Protection Act and Regulations. In addition, these PNTs (and/or products derived from them) are subject to the same phytosanitary import requirements as their unmodified counterparts.
