Regular reviews of the effectiveness of regulations and legislation are an important feature of modern regulatory systems.

The Safe Food for Canadian Act (SFCA) requires the review of provisions and operation of the Act five years after coming into force, and every five years thereafter, including an assessment of the resources allocated to its administration and enforcement.

The CFIA is considering a regular review of the proposed food regulations at the same time as the review of the SFCA. This would provide a comprehensive assessment of the legislative framework and contribute to an overall assessment of system performance.

Question 33: Do you support the approach to conduct reviews of regulations on a regular 5 year cycle?
