Inspection verification activities

Reporting to the Inspector General, the Inspection Verification Office (IVO) assesses and measures inspection activities at the field level to identify overall best practices and areas for improvement in our inspection system. The IVO is comprised of verification officers, analysts, administrators and a management team.

Verification officers are Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) employees selected for their expertise in CFIA inspection programs and auditing. They conduct unannounced verifications at inspection delivery points across Canada using standardized assessment criteria to assess a wide range of inspection activities and related functions. The inspection delivery points are selected based on pre-determined criteria.
