Version of section 32 from 2002-12-31 to 2020-06-30:

Marginal note:Inspection certificates

  •  (1) Subject to this Act, an inspector, after making an official inspection of grain pursuant to this Act, shall issue an inspection certificate in prescribed form,

    • (a) where the grain was grown in Canada,

      • (i) assigning to the grain a grade established by or under this Act or, if the grain is eligible to be assigned more than one grade, assigning to the grain the grade constituting the highest level of excellence for which the grain is eligible, and

      • (ii) stating the dockage to be separated from the grain in order that it may be eligible for the grade so assigned; or

    • (b) where the grain was grown outside Canada, stating the country of origin of the grain or stating that the grain is foreign grain.

  • Marginal note:Where assignation of grade not necessary

    (1.1) An inspector may, with the approval of the Commission, issue an inspection certificate in prescribed form in respect of grain that has been specially binned or that is or may be marketed on the basis of its specifications rather than a grade established by regulation without assigning any grade to the grain and, in that case, shall indicate in the certificate that the grain is specially binned or, in the case of grain that is or may be marketed on the basis of its specifications, the specifications.

  • Marginal note:Additional information

    (2) An inspection certificate shall contain such information, in addition to the information specified in subsection (1) or (1.1), as the case may be, as may be authorized by the Commission.
