This consultation document launches a process that is intended to lead to new regulations made under the SFCA. This consultation period will run from now until November 30, 2013. Unless submitting parties advise the CFIA that they don't want their comments posted, written comments received may be made available on the CFIA website.

Over the coming months, a series of consultation opportunities, such as webinars (web-based seminars) and face-to-face meetings, between CFIA and stakeholders will be organized. Associations are urged to take this document and gather feedback from their members on the proposed regulatory framework. CFIA will be available to answer questions and hear feedback.

Work on the proposed regulations will continue to progress, taking all the comments and feedback into account. In spring 2014, a Notice of intent will be released that will contain a discussion draft of the proposed new regulations. Further consultations will be undertaken at that time. Final publication of the regulations in Canada Gazette Part II is expected at the end of 2014 with a target for coming into force at the beginning of 2015.
