About the consultation

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) launched a 30-day public consultation to seek comments on the proposed guidance document: Registration Requirements for Mycotoxin Detoxification Agents (MDAs).

Mycotoxin Detoxification Agents (MDAs) are substances or mixtures of substances incorporated into a feed matrix to mitigate the toxicity of known mycotoxins by reducing the animal's exposure to the mycotoxins. This guidance document is intended to provide further clarification on the registration requirements for MDAs.

All comments are welcome from industry, governments, the public, or other organizations or individuals.
