Phytosanitary Certificate. Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 1
In order to avoid any disruption of trade, Canada is notifying its trading partners of a slightly revised format for Canadian phytosanitary certificates. As a result of updates to the system used to issue paper phytosanitary certificates, the revised format phytosanitary certificate issued by the CFIA will have minor layout changes compared to the current phytosanitary certificate.
The CFIA would like to stress that the revised format continues to follow the International Plant Protection Convention's model for phytosanitary certificates.
A specimen of the new Phytosanitary Certificate is attached. The version reference number "CFIA 1327 (2020/09)" is shown at the bottom left corner of all revised format phytosanitary certificates.
The new Phytosanitary Certificate will be issued by the CFIA starting from 8 December 2020. It is important to note that any phytosanitary certificate re-issued on 8 December 2020, onwards will also be under the revised format, even if the certificate that it replaces was presented in the earlier format.
