Section 17. Movement of Seed

Return to General Standards Table of Contents

When seed grown for certification is moved prior to tagging (either intended for certification or fully certified), it must be properly identified.  It is the responsibility of the applicant or grower to request the Seed Transfer Certificate form prior to the seed being moved. This form is for movement of seed Intra-County, Inter-County, or Inter-agency (State). The form is available at the CCIA web site at: Seed Transfer Certificate (Inter-agency or Inter-county permit)

The form may be initiated by the Agricultural Commissioner or the applicant/grower. The form must be signed by both parties and copies provided by mail, fax, or email to the Consignee, the CCIA office, Agricultural Commissioner office (both counties if applicable), shipper, and the receiving agency (if out of State).       

 

17.1  Intra-County movement of seed. Seed to be moved from one applicant/grower/conditioner to another within the same California county shall have a Seed Transfer Certificate form issued through the authority of the local Agricultural Commissioner. It is the intent of this permit to track seed moving under their jurisdiction. Any movement of seed between facilities within the same California county (such as storage to conditioner or conditioner to conditioner) must be approved by the local Agricultural Commissioner. The Seed Transfer Certificate is not to be used as a Bulk Sale Certificate to the end user, (refer to Section 26 Containers, Tags, and Labels).

 

17.2  Inter-County movement of seed. Seed to be moved from one California county into another California county shall have a Seed Transfer  Certificate form issued through the authority of the local Agricultural  Commissioner. It is the intent of this permit to notify the Agricultural Commissioner's  office in the receiving county that seed eligible for certification is moving  under their jurisdiction. The Seed Transfer Certificate is not to be used as a  Bulk Sale Certificate to the end user, (refer to Section 26 Containers, Tags, and Labels).

 

17.3  Inter-Agency (State) movement of seed. When seed is moved to another  state or an AOSCA country a Seed Transfer Certificate shall be used. The  intent of this document is to inform the appropriate AOSCA agency of the  identity, class, stage of conditioning or other pertinent information.
