Consultations Open on Plant-Derived Ingredients Pre-Market Assessments

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has opened a 60-day public consultation period on the draft guidance document titled “Determining the Need for Pre-Market Assessment for Plant-Derived Ingredients.”

The document is designed to offer transparency concerning the circumstances in which plant-derived ingredients necessitate a pre-market assessment as outlined in the Feeds Regulations. Additionally, it seeks to provide detailed insights into the defining attributes of plants that may lead to the classification of an ingredient as novel in the context of livestock feed.

The consultation is the long-awaited third piece in revamping Canada’s regulatory landscape as it concerns the CFIA’s Plants with Novel Traits regulations. The first two pieces of the puzzle were the PNT guidelines as they concern the environment and food. The CFIA has already released guidance on those areas, but policymakers and others in the industry have been waiting for a public consultation regarding animal feed.
