What is SFCR?
The SFCR or Safe Food for Canadian regulation is a series of regulations under the Safe Food for Canadian Act that focus primarily on three components.
- Preventative Control Plan
- Customer Protective Plan
What does it mean to food manufacturers, food importers and exporters?
Most food businesses that are regulated through the SFCR regulation would need a business license issued by CFIA. You can apply to obtain the business license on the myCFIA website. See tips for registering an account for myCFIA. You will be required to testify that you have a Preventative Control Plan, PCP plan before you can click the submit button.
While you may not be required to provide a PCP plan, you have agreed to have and implement a PCP plan. Therefore, you must be able to present a PCP plan and/or present relevant records to support that you are implementing the PCP plan.
