  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

FAS Amman in cooperation with the U.S. Grains Council and the Amman Chamber of Commerce organized on April 22-26, 2018, a first of its kind grains inspection and sampling workshop. The training program was geared towards government officials responsible for grain inspection standards and procedures. Thirty inspectors and laboratory officials from relevant agencies also attended the training. There is a need to adopt a standardized methodology for calculating the number of permissible broken kernels and averaging these by lots. Similarly, importers are calling for the government to study the possibility of increasing the permissible number of broken kernels and pulses bringing these more in line with international standards.
