Review of The Milk Pasteurization Regulations and the Milk Plant Standards

Review of The Milk Pasteurization Regulations and the Milk Plant Standards

As part of the Red Tape Reduction initiative, the Government of Saskatchewan sought feedback from stakeholders regarding proposed changes to The Milk Pasteurization Regulations and the Milk Plant Standards.

This engagement is now complete.

About The Milk Pasteurization Regulations and the Milk Plant Standards

Proposed changes to The Milk Pasteurization Regulations and The Food Safety Regulations have been drafted along with proposed revisions to the Milk Plant Standards that support the regulations.

The intended purpose of these regulations and standards is to ensure that facilities producing milk and specified milk products are constructed, operated, and maintained in a hygienic condition. These regulations help to minimize the risk of food-borne illness from disease-causing microorganisms that are commonly found in raw milk. The Milk Plant Standards support the regulations on milk plants by providing guidance and clarity for operators and regulators.


The Government of Saskatchewan would like to thank all participants for sharing their views. Participation included:

  • 3 Industry (milk producers, farmers, industry advocate/representatives)
  • 0 Public (consumers of milk and milk products)
  • 3 Government and Regulators

Summary of results

  • Changes were generally well received by responding stakeholders
  • A few minor areas noted for clarification of interpretation.
  • Testing frequency requirements will be clarified.

About Red Tape Reduction

The reduction of red tape and regulatory burden is a priority for the Government of Saskatchewan. Red tape impacts all residents and businesses and reduces the efficiency of government. Inconsistent, unclear, out-of-date, and duplicative regulations create hardship for Saskatchewan people and business and act as barriers to economic growth. The Government of Saskatchewan wants your input to Help Cut Red Tape and improve regulations.
