According to North American Meat Institute, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now recognizes Canada as having a comparable food safety system to the U.S. The decision , which was formalized in an agreement between FDA, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the Department of Health Canada (Health Canada), represents the second time that FDA has recognized a foreign food safety system as comparable to that of the U.S.; New Zealand was the first country to receive this distinction in 2012.

The arrangement allows FDA, CFIA and Health Canada to establish a framework for regulatory cooperation in areas that include scientific collaboration, inspection and outbreak response. FDA, working with CFIA and Health Canada, conducted a systems recognition review and assessment using the International Comparability Assessment Tool (ICAT) to evaluate relevant laws and regulations, inspection programs, compliance measures, enforcement and laboratory support and response efforts regarding food-related illness and outbreaks.
