You would have to investigate into what is required from CFIA for olive oil.  I bet there is a standard of identity and it may encompass microbial evaluation.  See below.

Although, you typically will not encounter microbial issues, but rather be battling oxidation issues with olive oil.

I appreciate it's EU regs, so this may or may not be helpful to you.... But in case it's any good to you, you might want to have a look here:
