CFIA organic import and admissibility requirements for processed products incorporated into AIRS

In the week of December 14, 2020, the organic import and admissibility requirements for processed products from chapter 20 will be incorporated into AIRS, in accordance with clause 357(3) of Part 13 of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations.

The importer/broker must confirm the possession of the certificate at the time of import in the Integrated Import Declaration (IID).

Starting 2022, importers of organic commodities for which the import requirements are included in AIRS will be required to submit a digital copy of the organic product certificate when declaring organic products online using the Integrated Import Declaration system.
