Recognizing the importance of continuing the dialogue initiated in Washington this past October regarding the cross-border Regulatory Cooperation Council Joint Forward Plan, Agriculture and Agri-Food’s Market Access Secretariat (MAS) in collaboration with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada is inviting stakeholders to participate in an upcoming webinar.
The objectives of this discussion will be: (1) to provide an update on the implementation of the Joint Forward Plan including the development of Department-Level Regulatory Partnerships Statements and Work Plans as they relate to key agriculture and agri-food items; and, (2) to seek views on the future initiatives identified in these Work Plans that would benefit both Canadian and U.S. stakeholders.
Areas covered will include: meat inspection and certification, plant health, animal health and veterinary drugs. A separate outreach event is being planned by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the Food and Drug Administration on food safety related items.
