The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is proposing to update the current guidance for Part V of the Seeds Regulations to help plant breeders and other stakeholders better understand the regulations and requirements that are relevant to them. These clarifications have been developed to help plant breeders and other stakeholders in determining when a plant is subject to Part V of the Seeds Regulations.
