Description for form - Record of Bulk Movement for Seed Potatoes

This is an image of a Record of Bulk Movement for Seed Potatoes form. It has seven boxes at the top containing the following categories: Number, Variety, Class, Quantity, Certificate Number, Size and Vehicle No. A bilingual note follows stating: "Note: Inspection for the purpose of certification was made either visually or through laboratory testing of samples, or both. Certification does not constitute a warranty by either the Canadian Food Inspection Agency or the grower that the seed potatoes meet the applicable standards set out in sections 47.11 to 47.8 of the Seeds Regulations. The Grower declares that the seed potatoes contained in this shipment are from the crop for which a crop certificate was issued bearing the crop certificate number shown on this record of bulk movement and that they are graded in accordance with section 48 and sub-sections 48.1(2) to (10) of the Seeds Regulations. The Grower declares that the vehicle carrying this shipment was disinfected, before loading, with a control product registered to the Pest Control Products Act for use against Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. sepedonicus."

The next section of boxes asks for: the purchaser's name and address and the name and address of grower or representative. Below those is a place for remarks and beside it is a box stating the following: "Keep this statement as a record of the certification of this seed." After which comes a notice that states in both English and French: "A request for reinspection of the seed potato lot may be made to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency within two working days after receipt of the lot." This is followed by a box for the Grower or Representative's signature and the date. At the bottom of the form there is a disclaimer stating "The information provided on this document is collected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for the purpose of recording movement of seed potatoes. Some information may be accessible or protected as required under the provisions of the Access to Information Act. Information that could cause you or your organization injury if released, is protected from disclosure as defined in section 20 of the Access to Information Act."
