CFIA update for importers and brokers of organic products

Home News CFIA update for importers and brokers of organic products

On June 10, 2019, new OGD extensions for organic fresh fruits and vegetables were implemented in the Automated Import Reference System (AIRS) database. The list of new OGD extensions was shared on May 22, 2019 with stakeholders prior to the AIRS publication.

On October 1, 2020, the AIRS database will be updated to reflect the Organic Certificate (Registration type #68) admissibility requirements. Importers of fresh fruits and vegetables will be required to submit a digital copy of organic product certificate, when declaring organic products online using the Integrated Import Declaration (IID).

If you have any questions, please contact the Canada Organic Regime team at cfia.opr-rpb.acia@canada.ca.
