Australian Grain Industry Code of Practice

Australian Grain Industry Code of Practice

Following evolving market conditions and industry's desire to demonstrate self regulation, GTA Members and the broader grain industry recognised that the development of a more prescriptive Code of Practice which better defines industry processes and procedures will negate the need for government imposed regulation.  Adherence to the Code became mandatory for all GTA members from 1 July 2014. 

Organisations that are not members of GTA will be encouraged to become Code signatories.

Technical Guideline Documents

The Code references many of the existing industry technical guideline documents, including a combination of quality assurance systems, storage and transport practices and sampling and testing regimes to assist the commercial marketing of grain in compliance with commercial and regulatory requirements.
