Reference Listing of Accepted Construction Materials, Packaging Materials and Non-Food Chemical Products

Using the Reference Listing Database

Last Update: 2017/05/09

Note: The office is closed. The CFIA no longer pre-approves construction materials, packaging materials, non-food chemicals and working apparel. The reference listing continues to be available on the CFIA website as a reference only. As the list is no longer maintained, it is up to users to verify the accuracy of the information with manufacturers. Learn more about the information on repealing the requirements for pre-market registration.
