Imported Cheese Sampling Compliance Frequencies. Description follows.
Description for Flowchart - Imported Cheese Sampling Compliance Frequencies. Description follows.

All imported cheeses, including new products, must have a complete microbiological and compositional analysis that is sampled by CFIA and paid by importer.

If the results are satisfactory, the cheese is assigned "Normal Status" for the purposes of sampling frequency. The CFIA sampling plan for these products is one complete microbiological and compositional analysis per year. Note: If these products ever receive an unsatisfactory result during sampling, they will be reassigned to "Directed Status".

If the results are unsatisfactory, the cheese is assigned "Directed Status" for the purposes of sampling frequency. The product must receive 10 consecutive satisfactory lots for microbiological to return to the "Normal Status" sampling frequency. For composition, refer to Dairy Sampling Procedures.
