Does Canada’s grain grading system facilitate sales on specification as well as statutory grades?
Yes. The Canadian grain grading system facilitates sales by specifications in several ways.
- The Canadian Grains Commission (CGC) certifies cargoes on the basis of grades or contract specifications at the request of exporters
- The CGC performs analysis and issues Letters of Analysis and Statements of Assurance for specific quality attributes.
