Commercial Grain Trade – Under what situations would Canada issue a Canadian phytosanitary certificate?

Under what situations would Canada issue a Canadian phytosanitary certificate?

If U.S. grain enters Canada with no U.S.-issued phytosanitary certificate, CFIA will issue a Canadian pharmacy, indicating origin as U.S., provided CFIA is able to stipulate on the basis of its inspection that the grain is compliant with the importing country’s requirements (this may or may not be possible, depending on requirements).   In the event that U.S. grain is imported into Canada and becomes commingled with Canadian grain, CFIA can issue a phytosanitary certificate to the overseas destination indicating the origin as USA/Canada, provided that CFIA can, through inspection or testing, verify the commodity is compliant with the importing country’s’ requirements.
