FOOD AND DRUGS ACT

Food and Drug Regulations — Amendments

Interim Marketing Authorization

Provision currently exists in the Food and Drug Regulations (the Regulations) for the use of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose as an emulsifying, gelling, stabilizing and thickening agent in various food products at levels ranging from 0.5% to levels consistent with good manufacturing practice.

Health Canada has received a submission to permit the use of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose to prevent the formation of hesperidin crystals in canned mandarin oranges at a maximum level of use of 0.005%. Evaluation of available data supports the safety and effectiveness of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose in the production of these food products.

The use of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose will benefit consumers and industry by enhancing the appearance of canned mandarin orange syrup. It will also benefit industry through more efficient and improved manufacturing conditions.

Therefore, it is the intention of Health Canada to recommend that the Regulations be amended to permit the use of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose to prevent the formation of hesperidin crystals in canned mandarin oranges at levels of use consistent with good manufacturing practice.

As a means to improve the responsiveness of the regulatory system, an Interim Marketing Authorization (IMA) is being issued to permit the immediate use of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, as indicated above, while the regulatory process is undertaken to amend the Regulations. Canned mandarin oranges are exempted from sections 6 and 6.1 of the Food and Drugs Act, paragraphs B.01.042(b) and B.11.101(c), and section B.16.007 of the Regulations only with respect to the use of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose.

The proposed regulatory amendments would be enabling measures to allow the sale of additional foods containing sodium carboxymethyl cellulose to prevent the formation of hesperidin crystals. The amendments are supported by the safety assessment and would have a low impact on the economy and on the environment. Consequently, the regulatory amendments may proceed directly to final approval and publication in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅱ.

Interested persons may make representations, with respect to Health Canada’s intention to amend the Regulations, within 75 days after the date of publication of this notice. All such representations must cite the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, and the date of publication of this notice, and be addressed to the contact person identified below.

Food and Drug Regulations — Amendments

Interim Marketing Authorization

Provision currently exists in the Food and Drug Regulations (the Regulations) for the use of the enzyme xylanase derived from various sources in the production of bread, flour, whole wheat flour and unstandardized bakery products at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice.

Health Canada has received a submission to permit the use of xylanase derived from Bacillus subtilis strain XAS in the production of bread, flour, whole wheat flour and unstandardized bakery products such as cookies and cakes at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice. Evaluation of available data supports the safety and effectiveness of xylanase derived from Bacillus subtilis (XAS) in these food products.

The use of xylanase derived from this micro-organism will benefit the consumer by increasing the availability of quality food products. It will also benefit industry through more efficient and improved manufacturing conditions.

Therefore, it is the intention of Health Canada to recommend that the Regulations be amended to permit the use of xylanase derived from Bacillus subtilis (XAS) in the production of bread, flour, whole wheat flour and unstandardized bakery products at levels consistent with good manufacturing practice.

As a means to improve the responsiveness of the regulatory system, an Interim Marketing Authorization (IMA) is being issued to permit the immediate use of this xylanase enzyme, as indicated above, while the regulatory process is undertaken to amend the Regulations. Bread, flour, and whole wheat flour are exempted from the application of sections 6 and 6.1 of the Food and Drugs Act, paragraph B.01.042(c) and section B.16.007 of the Regulations only with respect to the use of xylanase derived from Bacillus subtilis (XAS). Unstandardized bakery products are exempted from paragraph B.01.043(a) and section B.16.007 of the Regulations only with respect to the use of xylanase derived from Bacillus subtilis (XAS).

The proposed regulatory amendments would be enabling measures to allow the sale of the additional foods mentioned above that have been manufactured through the use of xylanase derived from Bacillus subtilis (XAS). The amendments are supported by the safety assessment and would have low impact on the economy and on the environment. Consequently, the regulatory amendments may proceed directly to final approval and publication in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅱ.

Interested persons may make representations, with respect to Health Canada’s intention to amend the Regulations, within 75 days after the date of publication of this notice. All such representations must cite the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅰ, and the date of publication of this notice, and be addressed to the contact person identified below.

Knowledge of the responsibilities, procedures and practices of leading and managing a public sector tribunal is required. The successful candidate is financially literate and knowledgeable of sound governance and management principles and practices. He/she should have knowledge and understanding of the procedures and practices involved in quasi-judicial hearings.

The ability to guide the Commission in carrying out its mandate in accordance with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission Act is essential. The preferred candidate must be able to interpret the provision of various statutes, regulations, policies and other documents. The ability to render fair, equitable and timely decisions, while anticipating their short- and long-term consequences, in a rapidly evolving environment is required, as is the ability to develop effective working relationships and build consensus. Superior communication skills, both written and oral, are required, as well as the ability to act as the CRTC’s media spokesperson on sensitive issues, to appear before Parliamentary Committees and to represent the CRTC with a wide range of stakeholders.

The selected candidate must have sound judgment, integrity and impartiality. The chosen candidate must adhere to high ethical standards and have superior interpersonal skills, tact and diplomacy.

Proficiency in both official languages would be preferred.

The successful candidate must be a Canadian citizen under the terms of the Citizenship Act, or a permanent resident as defined in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

The successful candidate must reside in or be prepared to relocate to the National Capital Region or to a location within reasonable commuting distance, and be prepared to travel across Canada.

The Government is committed to ensuring that its appointments are representative of Canada’s regions and official languages, as well as of women, Aboriginal peoples, disabled persons and visible minorities.

The preferred candidate must comply with the Ethical and Political Activity Guidelines for Public Office Holders. The guidelines are available on the Governor in Council Appointments Web site, under “Reference Material,” at www.appointments-nominations.gc.ca.

The selected candidate will be subject to the Conflict of Interest Act.
