Reference Listing of Accepted Construction Materials, Packaging Materials and Non-Food Chemical Products
Use of "marketing claims" as advertising related to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) or other government agencies:
Please note that any references related to CFIA logo, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada or Health Canada certifying acceptance, approval, evaluation, registration, homologation or a category in the CFIA's reference listing, e.g. : sub-category N1, are not acceptable and should not be used as marketing tools on a private label and or any advertising tools. This is also applicable to any other communication mediums with the clientele, e.g. : website, catalogue, brochure etc., in regards to the mandatory pre-market evaluation of non-food chemicals, construction materials and packaging materials by the present program prior to their use in registered food establishments in Canada.
Therefore our policies do not permit the use of the CFIA's name or any other government agencies as mentioned above by a commercial entity. This practice may be considered as an endorsement from our Agency or other government agencies and consequently should be deleted from any marketing tools used by a Canadian or a foreign manufacturer.
The Reference Listing of Accepted Construction Materials, Packaging Materials and Non-Food Chemical Products is now available as a database (except pesticides).
This is a current list of materials and non-food chemicals which have been found by the CFIA to be acceptable for use in establishments operating under the authority of the Agency. The primary purpose of this publication is to provide a ready reference for both inspection personnel and representatives of the managerial staff of establishments, to indicate acceptance status for products intended for use in establishments.
The inclusion of the name of the product in this list is not to be construed as an endorsement for that product by the Agency.
The CFIA does not distribute Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for products included in this list. To obtain MSDS sheets, you can contact the manufacturer of the products directly, or you can contact the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS).
Please note: Users of this Agency consolidation are reminded that it is prepared for convenience of reference only and that, as such, it has no official sanction. For information and guidance, please contact Chemical Evaluation Division, Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
