December 19, 2019 – The Canadian Food Inspection agency (CFIA) is advising industry that after obtaining a Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence, all food businesses that conduct domestic activities should add their operational activities, as well as information about how risk is controlled at their establishment, into their My CFIA account. Adding establishment information will be used by the CFIA to assess the food safety risk that establishments pose to consumers.

Why is it important for businesses to add additional establishment information into their My CFIA accounts
Data collected will be used to help drive the Establishment-based Risk Assessment (ERA) model to assign your establishment a risk level and allow the Agency to determine the appropriate level of inspection oversight activities related to your establishment. Providing this information helps determine the frequency and intensity of future inspections.

How to add the additional establishment information
The Profile Manager can enter additional establishment information at any time by locating the link on their My CFIA profile dashboard. It is recommended that the quality assurance or food safety personnel of the establishment be consulted.

Before adding your additional establishment information, make sure to read our Additional Establishment Information checklist to find out the information you will need to include and steps on how to add the information in your My CFIA profile.

You will also be prompted to provide the additional establishment information after your SFC licence is granted and when you amend or renew your licence.

Fish and Seafood sector
CFIA is currently requesting companies in the fish and seafood sector to complete the additional establishment information form if they hold a license to conduct domestic activities. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is currently in the process of collecting data from the fish and seafood sector to inform the Establishment-based Risk Assessment (ERA) model. Using the information provided for each establishment’s activities, products and risk mitigation factors, the model will calculate food safety risks of food establishments and help determine the inspection frequency for this sector. Licence holders who conduct domestic activities are requested to complete the additional establishment information form if they have not already done so

When completing your licencing information, please provide your previous fish registration number (under FIR) for each establishment to facilitate the creation of your risk profile. This can be entered in the [Add Existing Facility Registration Number] field and indicate the commodity (e.g. fish xxx). Also, identify the list of sub-products applicable to your establishment and volume calculation.

Applying for Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence
When you apply for your SFC licence, verify the licencing information you provide accurately reflects your activities and commodities as it will impact the questions triggered on the additional establishment information form.

Additional Information and resources

If you have any questions or comments, contact CFIA by email.

December 18, 2019 – On December 10, 2019, Canada, the United States and Mexico agreed to update certain elements of the new North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to improve the final outcome and clear the path toward ratification and implementation of the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) in all three countries. Changes will be made in the areas of state-to-state dispute settlement, labour, environment, intellectual property and rules of origin. The implementation of the new NAFTA will reinforce the strong economic ties between the three countries and enhance North American competitiveness globally. Importantly, the new Agreement preserves and enhances the integrated and virtually tariff-free market in North America by reducing red tape and lessening the administrative burden on importers and exporters.

View the CUSMA: Summary of revised outcomes

Details on the Canada-United States-Mexico (CUSMA) agreement is found on Global Affairs webpage.

The original NAFTA agreement remains in place until the new CUSMA agreement comes into force. Global Affairs will provide notification as to when the agreement will become in effect.

Mutual Recognition Arrangements (MRAs) expand the international trade network of accredited low-risk companies.?An MRA between the CBSA and other customs administrations regarding the Partners in Protection (PIP) and compatible customs-trade partnership programs means that:

  • both countries apply similar security standards and site validation practices when approving companies for membership in their respective programs, and
  • both countries recognize each other’s members and may grant them similar benefits.

MRAs allow government customs administrations to work together to improve their ability to target high risk shipments while expediting legitimate cargo. To enhance cross-border security, the CBSA has signed MRAs recognizing the compatibility of its PIP program with the foreign Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) programs.
