Commercial Grain Trade – What if the grain requires further processing (includes cleaning) after entering Canada?

What if the grain requires further processing (includes cleaning) after entering Canada?

The importer will need to ensure that any grain or seed imported into Canada that requires further processing (such as cleaning), meets the requirements of CFIA directive D 96-07 (Import Requirements for Screenings and Grain and Seed for Cleaning).  http://www.inspection.gc.ca/plants/plant-protection/directives/grains-and-field-crops/d-96-07/eng/1312248301269/1312248485624

This directive requires the importer to ensure that the facility that will be processing the grain has a compliance agreement with CFIA that outlines how the screenings generated from the further processing will be handled and disposed of.
