The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) came into effect July 1, 2020. Under the agreement, Canada agrees to allow grain grown in the United States to receive an official Canadian grade as long as the grain is of a variety approved in Canada. Canada also agrees to remove requirements for official inspection certificates to indicate that grain grown in the United States is of foreign or mixed origin. Effective August 1, 2020 a standardized Declaration of Eligibility for Delivery of Grain will be required. The country of origin will continue to be cited on the phytosanitary certificate upon request of the importing country.
