Certification Bodies Recognized by CARTV

In order to accept products coming from outside Québec and bearing a reserved designation on their packaging, their labelling or in advertising, display or presentation, the CARTV recognizes the conformity of bodies certifying products falling under the jurisdiction of the Québec regulations.

In addition, the CARTV accepts products certified organic by a CFIA accredited certification body if those products are compliant with criteria from Organic Specification Manual in Quebec.

Since January 15, 2021, organic aquaculture products imported in Canada must by compliant with Safe Food for Canadians Regulations. Accredited certifcation bodies outside Canada that were recognized by CARTV must now follow this regulation to export products from their clients.
