Activities for the Non-Food Chemical and Container Integrity Program


Non food chemicals

These are chemicals which are used in a food plant environment, which should not become part of the food product, during their use and storage (i.e.. Cleaners, lubricants, disinfectants, sanitizers, water treatment compounds etc).

Non-Food Chemicals should not to be confused with food additives i.e.. FDA “food additive” means any substance the use of which results, or may reasonably be expected to result, in it or its by-product becoming a part of or affecting the characteristics of a food”

Non-Food Chemicals


Evaluation protocol for non food chemicals
Evaluation Protocol for Non-Food Chemicals environment, which should not become part of the food product, during their use and storage


Evaluation of non food chemicals

The complete chemical composition of the product, listing all ingredients by percentage or quantitatively ( all components shall be identified chemically)

a copy of a draft label

Note: submission forms can be obtained off our web site at http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/ppc/reference/sube.shtml

Evaluation of Non-Food Chemicals


Evaluation of non food chemicals1

Once the review is completed and chemical product is found acceptable for its intended use in a food plant, a letter of acceptance is issued to the applicant, based on the acceptability of the chemical composition and label of the product.

The accepted product and the firms name is then entered on our web site.
