Fertilizer Program Regulatory Modernization

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is undertaking a review of its regulations for food safety, plant and animal health to improve their consistency, reduce their complexity and strengthen consumer protection. As part of a multi-year, structured and comprehensive review of its regulatory frameworks, the Agency aims to ensure that safety is the overarching consideration and that regulations align with leading industry practices, and are outcome-based and transparent. Throughout the regulatory modernization process, the CFIA will continue to seek feedback from consumers and consumer associations. Modernized regulations will reduce unnecessary regulatory burden; provide clarity and flexibility in regulations; and support innovation and changes in science and technology.
