About Us What are the standards that SCCL follows?

SCCL adheres to the extensive regulatory standards of several regulatory authorities and maintains licenses and/or registrations that include:

  • Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Canadian Centre for Veterinary Biologics (CCVB)

  • CFIA, Safe Food for Canadians (SFCR)

  • The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Center for Veterinary Biologics (CVB)

  • Health Canada, Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate of Health Canada (NNHPD)

  • Health Canada Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)

  • Health Canada, Veterinary Health Products (VHP)

  • European Union Trade Control and Expert System (TRACES)

SCCL undergoes a comprehensive facility inspection on an annual or biennial basis by each of the CFIA-CCVB, CFIA-SFCR, USDA-CVB and TRACES. All our products, including those for calves, lambs, goats, dogs, cats and people, must adhere to specific guidelines regarding the manufacture, packaging, labeling, laboratory testing and sample retention of each serial of product.

The Center of Veterinary Biologics for each of the CFIA and USDA licenses or permits our calf and lamb and kid (goat) products. The USDA requires that samples of each serial are submitted for evaluation prior to release into the marketplace. Every label is reviewed and filed by either the CFIA, USDA or both.

SCCL is proud to have the most comprehensive compliance program in the industry.

No other colostrum manufacturer is inspected by the combination of described regulatory authorities, is GMP/HACCP certified, and has licenses or registrations for each of calves, small ruminants, pets and people. Non-licensed products do not require these stringent requirements and are not inspected by competent authorities on a scheduled basis, or at all.

When using our products, a producer, owner or user can be confident that our products will be safe and effective.
