Rye - Chapter 5 | Official Grain Grading Guide

Export shipments

Export shipments can be commercially clean or not commercially clean.

Commercially clean

Shipments are defined as commercially clean when meeting the commercially clean specifications listed in the export grade determinant table upon following the Determination of commercially clean procedures described in this chapter.

No dockage is reported for samples representing commercially clean rye.

Not commercially clean (NCC)

Shipments that do not meet the standards for commercial cleanliness are referred to as not commercially clean. Such shipments are permitted only with the permission of the Canadian Grain Commission.

For samples representing not commercially clean shipments approved by the Canadian Grain Commission for shipment from terminal elevators, dockage is reported to the nearest:

  • 0.1% for samples representing shipments loaded from a single terminal elevator
  • 0.01% for composite samples representing shipments loaded from more than one terminal elevator
    less a deduction of up to 0.2% to take into account the buildup of attritional material for direct shipments only.

A deduction of up to 0.2% is applied to take into account the buildup of attritional material for direct shipments only.

Grading

Rye on export is graded using standard samples and export specifications. Where there are no export specifications, the primary specifications are used.
