How do the CanadaGAP requirements align with the SFCR requirements?
A CanadaGAP presentation was created to explain how CanadaGAP requirements align with SFCR requirements.
CFIA has fully recognized CanadaGAP as a model system to meet the food safety elements of the regulations. They have done a full comparison between SFCR requirements for food safety and CanadaGAP requirements and determined 100% alignment. Only non-food safety elements of the regulations would need to be added for a CanadaGAP-certified company to have preventive controls that are fully compliant with the regulations (e.g., grade standards, labelling).
