Addressing a question to the SIC

Is there a question that you want to address to the SIC?

 

Questions about the meaning of a particular point in the Canadian Organic Standard may originate from any source and are directed to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) at cfia.opr-rpb.acia@canada.ca


There is no specific form on which stakeholders should present their questions; but the SIC is suggesting the following guidelines:

  •  If you are a certified operator, you should first direct your question to your certifying body. As a professional delivering inspection services, the CB is your first reference.
  • If you could not get a satisfying answer from your CB, you can address your question to the CFIA, at cfia.opr-rpb.acia@canada.ca , that will request guidance of the SIC if needed.
  • Please address your question as clearly as possible, providing sufficient background to have the SIC understanding your issue and issuing the correct answer.
  • If your question is not clear enough, the CFIA officer may contact you to get additional information.
  • The CFIA does not divulgate your identity when requesting guidance of the SIC.


So, feel free to send your questions remembering to…

  • Ask first to your certifying body
  • Issue a clear question with supporting background
  • Send your question at cfia.opr-rpb.acia@canada.ca
  • Request to be anonymous or allow the SIC to know who you are
