Mixed grain - Chapter 9 | Official Grain Grading Guide

Export shipments

Shipments can be commercially clean or not commercially clean. Dockage is not reported for commercially clean shipments

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 mixed grain.

Not commercially clean (NCC)

Shipments that do not meet the standards for commercial cleanliness are referred to as not commercially clean. Such shipments are allowed 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.

Grading

Mixed grain on export is graded in accordance with export specifications. Where there is no export specification the primary specification and procedures are used. The composition of samples is shown on all records and endorsed on the backs of certificates.
