Canola Seed and Grain - Freedom from Genetically Modified (GM) Brassicaceae Seed

1. Canola seed and grain must be accompanied by a certificate or statement of analysis from an approved laboratory that adequately identifies the 1lot from which the tested sample was drawn and states that the lot has been sampled and tested in a manner approved by DPIPWE such that a level of contamination by GM material of 0.01% would be detected with a probability of 95% and the test has returned a negative result for GM events known to have been inserted into Canola.
