Container sampling programs

The Canadian Grain Commission’s accredited and certified container sampling programs were launched on August 1, 2012. These programs make Canadian Grain Commission certification more readily available for grain exported in containers. Canadian Grain Commission certification is based on inspection by Canadian Grain Commission inspectors.
