Excerpt from Grainnet Article:

Winnipeg, MB, and Washington, DC — Feb. 4, 2015 — The Canada-US Grain and Seed Trade Task Group has published new information that will help commercial grain handlers and buyers better understand the regulations on cross-border trade.

The task group includes several not-for-profit U.S. and Canadian associations working together to provide information that facilitates grain and seed marketing between the two countries.

The information is posted on the group's website, http://canada-usgrainandseedtrade.info.

It includes new options for commercial handlers to obtain a phytosanitary certificate for U.S., Canadian or commingled grain shipments to third countries loaded at elevators in either country.

The website now provides four trade modules, covering U.S. producer deliveries, Canadian producer deliveries, seed trade and the new commercial module as well as industry news updates.

The task group formed after the Canadian Marketing Freedom for Grain Farmers Act of 2011 ended the mandatory marketing requirement for western Canadian farmers and changed several aspects of the commercial trade, including the elimination of end-use certificates.
