Mandatory use of digital equine infectious anemia (EIA) test certificates in Canada: Closed consultation
Current status: Closed
This consultation ran from February 8, 2021 to March 15, 2021
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is planning to make the use of digital equine infectious anemia (EIA) test certificates mandatory in Canada. When that happens, the paper submission forms that are currently used (CFIA Forms 3937 and 4679) will only be accepted in unique circumstances. The CFIA launched a consultation to seek feedback from EIA accredited veterinarians on how best to implement the change.
Who was the focus of this consultation
The CFIA launched a consultation to seek input from private veterinarians that are accredited by the CFIA to perform duties related to the EIA control program in Canada.
Key questions for discussion
The CFIA sought feedback on the use of digital equine infectious anemia (EIA) test certificates:
- Do you currently use the CFIA-approved digital EIA test certification system?
- Do you have any concerns with using the digital system?
- When do you feel it is reasonable for the CFIA to implement the mandatory use of digital EIA test certificates in Canada?
