List of approved feed ingredients

Schedules IV and V of the Feeds Regulations are the lists of ingredients that have been evaluated and approved by the CFIA for manufacture, sale or import in Canada.

Part 1 of Schedules IV and V

Ingredients listed in Part I of Schedules IV and V are exempt from registration and may be imported, sold and used freely in the manufacture of feeds in Canada, provided they:

Part I ingredients may not have extra label guarantees or claims. Ingredients with extra label guarantees or claims that are not prescribed in the Feeds Regulations require pre-market assessment and approval.

Part II of Schedules IV and V

Ingredients in Part II Schedule IV and V are not exempt from registration. As there may be inherent safety and/or efficacy variations associated with an individual source of the ingredient, or introduced via the manufacturing process, a pre-market assessment is required. Each source of these ingredients must, therefore, be registered with information/data to support the safety and/or efficacy of the product.

Ingredients requiring approval and/or registration

For more information about approval or registration, refer to the RG-1 Regulatory Guidance: Feed Registration Procedures and Labelling Standards.
