2.2.5. Registers of operations: Every person who is required to hold a permit or to register under the Act must keep registers and retain vouchers of his operations at the disposal of inspectors.
The said registers and vouchers must indicate:
(a) the nature and quantity of the products bought or received;
(b) the date of their purchase or receipt and, for each lot of live marine bivalve molluscs, the species, the date of fishing or harvesting and the area or sector of origin;
(c) the name and address of the supplier and, in the case of a warehouser, the name and address of the consignor and the number corresponding to the same lot of products stored, with mention of the number of the stamp in the case of meat or meat products coming from an authorized operator.
Where a given lot of marine bivalve molluscs has undergone depuration, the registers and vouchers shall also indicate the date on which the molluscs were taken from the area or sector they were in before being depured, the beginning and end dates of the depuration process and, where applicable, the area or sector where they underwent depuration.
Where a given lot of live marine bivalve molluscs is kept or conditioned in a fish-tank, the registers and vouchers shall indicate the beginning and end dates for the time the lot was kept or conditioned in the fish-tank and the source of the water in which it was kept or conditioned.
In the case of a permit holder referred to in subparagraph c or d of the first paragraph of section 9 of the Act, the aforesaid record of the name and address of the supplier may be made on invoices taking the place of registers in the case of inedible meat other than the one mentioned in paragraph A or of the carcasses mentioned in subparagraph b of paragraph B of section 7.1.1.
For the purposes of this Regulation, a lot of live marine bivalve molluscs is composed of only one species from the same area or sector, picked or harvested on the same date and, where applicable, depured on the same dates in the waters of the same area or sector or processed or conditioned identically on the same dates.
Furthermore, the area or sector corresponds to the areas or sectors delimited in the Quebec Fishery Regulations, 1990 (SOR/90-214).
For the purposes of this Regulation, excepting this section, the area or sector of picking or harvesting means the area or sector where the molluscs were located upon picking or harvesting, regardless of whether they has been relocated for depuration purposes.
