The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is revising directive D-10-01: General Import Requirements for Fresh Peppers and Tomatoes from the World. The 3rd revision of the directive is intended to improve the clarity of the requirements and to improve their alignment with international standards.
The changes included in the 3rd revision of D-10-01 are as follows:
- Additional declarations for regulated articles originating from infested countries have been revised.
- The list of countries approved to export regulated articles to Canada has been updated.
- Various editorial changes to improve the clarity of the text. Changes to the CFIA's Automated Import Reference System (www.inspection.gc.ca/airs) associated with the 3rd revision of D-10-01 will be implemented on the date of publication of the directive. The CFIA will provide a 30-day transition period during which time both the current and revised additional declarations will be accepted on phytosanitary certificates received by Canada.
Additional details regarding the timing of adoption and publication of directive D-10-01 will be communicated as an addendum to this document.
