Biotechnology Notices of Submission

The CFIA and Health Canada post "notices of submission" on the CFIA website that describe the product and the data they receive from certain product developers who have requested safety assessments of plants with novel traits (PNTs) for unconfined release and safety assessments of novel feeds and novel foods derived from PNTs.

Submissions Posted For Public Comment

Scientific questions or information will be forwarded to CFIA and Health Canada evaluators for consideration in the assessment. Non-scientific input will be evaluated and appropriate ways of addressing it will be explored. Subject to your consent, the CFIA will forward your comments to developers whose products are being assessed and may post them on the CFIA and Health Canada web sites.  Developers will not be given your name or email and postal address, nor will any personal information be posted on the CFIA or Health Canada web site.

All personal information shall be treated in accordance with the Privacy Act and the Access to Information Act.
