The import and admissibility requirements for all the end uses of organic Seed products from chapters 07, 09, 10 and 12 were incorporated into AIRS, in January 2023, as per Part13 of theSafe Food for Canadians Regulations.
The new other government department (OGD) codes will differentiate organic products from conventional products. It is the responsibility of the importer to familiarize themselves with the new codes in AIRS and comply with the import requirements.
At this time, importers/brokers will be required to confirm possession of the organic product certificate at the time of import in the Integrated Import Declaration (IID).
Importers will be notified once all import requirements are incorporated in AIRS. From that time onwards importers of organic commodities will be required to submit a digital copy of the organic product certificate when declaring organic products online using the Integrated Import Declaration system.
