New Food Saftey & Quality Regulations
The evolving changes for food management, safety and quality programs from HACCP, SQF and BRC, along with with the new CFIA and FDA rules are all addressing the same issue; Namely stronger reporting, record keeping and enforcement for the management of food production and distribution.
The following statements were made by CFIA with the introduction of the “Safe Food for Canadians Act”:
“… traceability information to be provided electronically, upon request, in plain text and in a format that can be imported and manipulated by standard commercial software…” (CFIA, Government of Canada, 2014)
“…regulations would require traceability records to be retained for 3 years for all products, including those that are perishable…” (CFIA, Government of Canada, 2014)
