Export Registers and Lists

Canada's international trading partners often require the exporters or various parts of the distribution chain to be identified on a registry or list, either maintained by the CFIA or by the foreign country.

Depending on the foreign country and the product being exported, often lists will be maintained that could require one or more of the following parts of the distribution chain to be listed in order for the shipment to be eligible for export:

  • Exporter
  • Product (including the Imported ingredients)
  • Manufacturer / Processor
  • Storage Facility
  • Harvesting Vessel
  • Shellfish Shippers

Establishments on eligibility lists may experience limitations if there is an animal disease outbreak linked to the animal based food products they are exporting. Countries sometimes impose specific animal health restrictions on meat and other foods from countries other than Canada which may reduce the ability of Canadian establishments importing product to use which will be exported later.

Or by the various food product sectors:

Dairy Products

Egg and Processed Egg Products

Fish and Seafood

Meat and Poultry
