Our Focus Safety & Security Standardized Codes of Practices Anhydrous Ammonia

Anhydrous Ammonia Code Audit

Ensuring fertilizer safety requires standardized Codes of Practice and a coordinated effort among all industry stakeholders.

The Ammonia Code of Practice applies to all agri-retail facilities in Canada that store or retail anhydrous ammonia. Agri-retail sites in Canada must be fully compliant with the standards outlined in the Ammonia Code of Practice. Audits will assist agri-retailers in reaching compliance by identifying deficiencies in a proactive manner, allowing for correction before there is a regulatory or safety concern.

What happens if I do not get my facility re-audited?

If you do not get your facility re-audited before year-end, we will notify all the anhydrous ammonia manufacturers that your site is no longer in compliance and eligible to receive shipments of anhydrous ammonia. Certificates will be withdrawn until your facility has completed an audit.

In addition, an administration fee of $500.00 will be required to re-activate your certification status. Delaying re-certification to the following year will not extend certification. There is a significant risk of losing your insurance coverage if you are not certified.
