This notice is to inform importers and brokers that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has successfully updated the Automated Import Reference System (AIRS) to include the Safe Food for Canadians (SFC) licence requirement for the food commodities that now require a SFC licence.

Due to the numerous changes to the AIRS database, we encourage the users to consult AIRS to view the most recent updates to the CFIA regulated food products and to obtain pertinent information. For those importers/brokers using the AIRS Verification Service (AVS), AVS currently reflects all updated AIRS information.

For more information regarding the HS codes being changed, see Changes to harmonized system (HS) codes.


Members are reminded to consult the CFIA Automated Import Reference System (AIRS) for import requirements for fresh fruits and vegetables.
