  9. AS CANADA’S FOOD SAFETY REGULATOR, WE ADMINISTER: 14 different programs related to foods, plants and animals

  10. WHAT WE DO THREE IMPORTANT AGENCY ACTIVITIES • Food Safety • Plant Protection • Animal Health

  11. Establishment Inspection Product Inspection Establishment Registration Licensing Certification Enforcement FOOD SAFETY INSPECTIONS

  12. FOOD SAFETY BUREAU OF FOOD SAFETY AND CONSUMER PROTECTION Food Safety Investigations Program Fair Labelling Practices Program

  13. The Office of Food Safety and Recall (OFSR) coordinates the response to urgent or emergency food safety matters FOOD SAFETY FOOD INVESTIGATION AND RECALLS Consumer protection through effective management of emergency situations

  14. Food Safety Enhancement Program (FSEP) Quality Management Program (QMP) FOOD SAFETY PROGRAMS Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety assurance method which is designed to reduce food safety hazards through prevention

  15. Requires that food packaging & construction materials and non-food chemicals be evaluated and found acceptable prior to their use in food plants FOOD SAFETY PREREQUISITE PROGRAMS for HACCP, FSEP, QMP

  16. Non-Food Chemicals and Container Integrity Program Food Safety Risk Analysis Unit Science Division Policy Planning Coordination Directorate

  17. Evaluate Non-Food Chemicals Evaluate Construction Materials Evaluate Packaging Materials Maintain a Reference List of Accepted Agents and Materials Establish policies, standards, and guidelines for container integrity Activities for the Non-Food Chemical and Container Integrity Program

  18. These are chemicals which are used in a food plant environment, which should not become part of the food product, during their use and storage (i.e.. Cleaners, lubricants, disinfectants, sanitizers, water treatment compounds etc). Non-Food Chemicals should not to be confused with food additives i.e.. FDA “food additive” means any substance the use of which results, or may reasonably be expected to result, in it or its by-product becoming a part of or affecting the characteristics of a food” Non-Food Chemicals

  19. Evaluation Protocol for Non-Food Chemicals

  20. The complete chemical composition of the product, listing all ingredients by percentage or quantitatively ( all components shall be identified chemically) a copy of a draft label Note: submission forms can be obtained off our web site at Evaluation of Non-Food Chemicals

  21. Once the review is completed and chemical product is found acceptable for its intended use in a food plant, a letter of acceptance is issued to the applicant, based on the acceptability of the chemical composition and label of the product. The accepted product and the firms name is then entered on our web site. ( Evaluation of Non-Food Chemicals

  22. Disinfectants that are used in food plants require to be registered with Health Canada, Therapeutic Products Program and obtain a Drug Identification Number (DIN) Pesticides are to be registered with Health Canada, Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) to obtain a Pest Control Products registration number (PCP #) Evaluation of Non-Food Chemicals

  23. Barrier Creams/Agents- Cleaners general Cleaners for hands Cleaners for use on food products Cleaners for personal hygiene Cleaners for drains Decharacterizing Agents for red meat Decharacterizing Agents for white meat Denaturing Agents for red meat Non-Food Chemicals Categories • Denaturing Agents for white meat • Deodorizers • Disinfectants • Egg Treatment Compounds • Lubricants • Maintenance Aid Products • Pesticides • Processing Aids • Refrigerants/Heat Exchanger Agents • Release Agents • Sanitizers • Water Treatment Compounds

  24. Pesticide products for outdoor use only Products used in offices or similar non-food processing or storage areas Products used in cafeterias/lunch rooms, welfare areas, washrooms Products used in heating systems Products used in outdoor sewage systems and in plant segregated waste treatment systems Products used in cooling towers or evaporator condensers Products used in cleaning or maintenance of the exterior vehicles Non-Food Chemicals Exemption Categories

  25. The products are not intended for use in or around food handling areas. Their use should not pose a health risk to the food product during use and storage. They are not to be stored in food handle areas of a food plant. They are not intended to come in contact with the food products or food contact surfaces. The products must be labeled (also they may have to comply with other government legislation i.e. WHMIS, DIN, PCP) Conditions for Exemption of Non-Food Chemicals

  26. The Reference Listing Web Site Address • Reference Listing http://www.inspection.gc. ca/english/ppc/reference/cone. shtml • Jack Donald entering data

  27. Click on the letter for name of the firm

  28. The Future The use of Decision Tree Models for nonfood chemicals, packaging & construction materials Electronic filing Restructuring the Reference Listing Web Site to a data base function

  29. Decision Tree Model for Non-Chemicals
