Traceability is the ability to track the movement of any food or food commodity one step back and one step forward. Traceability documents must be prepared, kept, and provided to CFIA according to sections 88-90 of the proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations.

General exemptions from the proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations are:

  • food for personal use, when
  • food carried on any conveyance that is intended for the crew or passengers
  • food for analysis, evaluation, research, or a trade show provided that the food is part of a shipment that weighs 100 kg or less or, in the case of eggs, is part of a shipment of five or fewer cases
  • food that is not intended or sold for human consumption
  • food imported from the United States onto the Akwesasne Reserve by a permanent resident of the Reserve for their use
  • food imported in bond (in transit) for use by crew and passengers of a cruise ship or military ship in Canada
  • food traded between federal penitentiaries
  • transporting a food commodity, if that is the sole activity of a person.
