Latest Updates for Importers of Organic Products

blog | Apr 14, 2023

The import and admissibility requirements for all the end uses of organic feed products from chapters 4, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, 32, 33 and 35 were incorporated into the Automated Import Reference System (AIRS) in March 2023, as per Part 13 of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations. 
The new other government department (OGD) codes will differentiate organic products from non-organic products. Importers must familiarize themselves with the new codes in AIRS and comply with the import requirements.  

Importers and brokers must confirm possession of an organic product certificate at the time of import in the Integrated Import Declaration (IID). 
Importers will be notified once all import requirements are incorporated in AIRS. From then on, a digital copy of the organic product certificate will have to be submitted when declaring organic products online using IID.
