The SFCR, which will come into force on January 15, 2019, will simplify and strengthen rules for food in Canada, whether produced here or imported into the country.
This 1 day live-virtual online course focuses on implementing the two Preventive Control Plan (PCPs) required under CFIA's Safe Food for Canadians Regulations, Food Safety PCP and Market Fairness PCP. The course will also help with understanding the key licensing requirements of SFCR. The SFCR is aligned with internationally recognized standards, such as CODEX Alimentarius, for food safety and consumer protection requirements.

1) Requirements and guidance for food exporters and importers (Licensing, traceability and preventive controls) to comply with CFIA
2) Food Safety Preventive Control Plan (PCP)
- Types of Hazards: Biological, Chemical and Physical
- Five Preliminary Steps
- Conducting Hazard Analysis to determine significant hazards and their control measures
- Critical Control Point Procedure (Critical Limits, Monitoring, Corrective Action, Verification and Recordkeeping)
- Evidence showing control measures are effective
- Evidence showing the PCP has been implemented
3) Customer Protection and Market Fairness Preventive Control Plan
- Labelling, standards of identity, grades, packaging and net quantity
4) Introduction to Food-specific requirements and guidance
In addition to general requirements, other requirements apply to specific foods.
5) Toolkit for businesses- Interactive tools and other resources to see how and when new requirements will apply to your business and what you need to do.
