How to add an active application to My CFIA
If you have submitted a pre-market application for product approval or registration, research, or data review for your livestock feed product using the traditional mail-in process, you are encouraged to resubmit your application online through My CFIA.
By submitting your application through My CFIA, you will be able to manage, track and check the status of your application online at any time without losing your current place in the review queue. Simply include your file reference number in the online application name to indicate that it is an active submission. A shortened and simplified online application process is available for active submissions and is detailed in the CFIA guidance document below.
How to renew a product registration online using My CFIA
For products that have not been registered or renewed through My CFIA before, applicants will need to create a new online file for those products. This will include entering ingredients and nutrient guarantees for products as well as submitting labels, which is not normally required for renewals. However, the advantage of renewing online is that once the product file is created, all the information will be stored making subsequent renewals and other service requests quick and easy.
