The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has revised a guidance document regarding Safe Food for Canadians licensing requirements for manufacturers and importers of infant formula and human milk fortifier. The Safe Food for Canadians licensing system grants licenses to food business operators to conduct specific activities relating to food, such as importing.
Those applying for a Safe Foods for Canadians license will be asked to identify the relevant foods by choosing from a list of food commodities and sub-commodities.
“Annex A: Food commodities Identified in the License Application” of the guidance document What to Consider Before applying for a Safe Food for Canadians License has been updated to clarify the licensing requirements for manufacturers and importers of infant formula and human milk fortifier. In addition, “human milk fortifiers” have been added as an example of food under the “Manufactured foods” commodity, sub-commodity “Infant Foods.”
Annex A provides a complete list of commodity and sub-commodity titles to be used when applying for licensing.
