CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

Route Article

Mutual endorsement of food safety systems

Food testing

Canada and the U.S. have formally endorsed each other’s food safety systems by agreeing that each country offers a similar level of protection.  The agreement benefits both signees by allowing them to place a higher priority on inspection of foods from countries with less stringent food safety standards.

Importers in both countries will benefit as well because they will know that a product approved in one country will likely be approved in the other.  Imports into Canada must continue to meet Canadian requirements, and imports into the U.S. must continue to meet all applicable U.S. requirements.
