Accredited and certified container sampling programs
The Canadian Grain Commission’s accredited and certified container sampling programs were launched on August 1, 2012. These programs make Canadian Grain Commission certification more readily available for grain exported in containers. Canadian Grain Commission certification is based on inspection by Canadian Grain Commission inspectors.
- Allows grain companies to obtain official inspection and certification by the Canadian Grain Commission of their container shipments based on a sample taken by a Canadian Grain Commission-accredited third party.
- Allows grain and transloading companies to take samples at their facilities and submit them to the Canadian Grain Commission for inspection.
- Allows third party audit companies to conduct audits of grain sampling systems under the Certified container sampling program.
- Allows companies shipping flaxseed in containers to ship under the Sampling and testing protocol for flaxseed exported in containers for European Union and Brazil.
