CFIA Seminar

Don't Risk Your CFIA Goods Being Held Up at the Border

Pacific Customs Brokers is offering a session related to CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) regulated goods. By attending this seminar, you will gain a better understanding of how CFIA and Canada Customs interact. The knowledge you will acquire will expedite your shipments rather than trigger costly delays. This session will be of interest to Commercial/Professional Importers, Business Owners, Operation Managers, Carriers, Controllers, Purchasers, Warehouse Managers, Freight Coordinators, Shippers and Receivers. This is a great opportunity for businesses with newly hired logistics staff to receive cost-effective training and/or refresh their awareness of cross-border trade. If you are importing regulated goods on both sides of the border, we offer a full day seminar covering both CFIA and FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration).

CFIA Regulated Goods & Related Industries:

Seafood, produce, grocery, meat, wood & lumber, horticulture, livestock, animal feed & drugs, pet food, vitamins & supplements.

Topics Include:

  • Canadian Food Inspection Agency
  • Acts & Regulations
  • Licensing
  • Import & Permits
  • Documentation Requirements
  • Wood Packaging - Canada & USA
  • The Customs Release Process
  • Interaction Between CBSA & CFIA
  • Monetary Penalties
