Regulation and Standards – Other Information for Grain Deliveries in Canada

What other information is important for grain deliveries in Canada?

The CFIA has created an information kit for customs brokers that act on behalf of an importer bringing grain or seed into Canada. The weblink to this document is http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/imp/kite.shtml.

Imports of grain to Canada are regulated on the basis of the origin, destination of the grain and the end use for the material.  In order to be released into Canada, grain importers must decide what the end use of the material will be, and the grain must meet the requirements as specified in AIRS at the time of importation.  It is not possible to import grain for “all” or “unknown” end uses because such imports would be expected to enter with all documents to cover every possible end use for the material.
