Canada launches consultations to strengthen food safety enforcement

The proposed regulatory amendments will enable the issuance of monetary penalties for violation of these laws.

Thursday 6 March 2014 (4 years 2 months 22 days ago)

The Government of Canada is proposing to amend the Agriculture and Agri-Food Administrative Monetary Penalities Regulations (AMPs Regulations) to expand Administrative Monetary Penalities (AMPs) to the Meat Inspection Act and the Meat Inspection Regulations, 1990.

The proposed regulatory amendments will enable the issuance of monetary penalties for violation of these laws.

AMPs are an important element of a modern enforcement and inspection system. They provide an additional tool to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) inspectors' existing toolkit for addressing non-compliance, without having to suspend or cancel a licence or seek prosecution.

The expansion of the AMPs Regulations supports other activities being undertaken by the CFIA, as set out in the Healthy and Safe Food for Canadians Framework. This framework outlines how the Government is working to prevent food safety risks, and protect Canadians when unsafe products enter the marketplace.

The proposed amendments to the AMPs Regulations were published in Canada Gazette, Part 1 on February 22, 2014. The comment period will be open until March 22, 2014.
