Marginal note:Elevator receipt

  •  (1) On receipt of grain into a licensed terminal elevator, the operator of the elevator shall, if the grain has been weighed under subsection 69.1(1) or (2), or inspected under subsection 70(1) or (2) or weighed or inspected — officially or otherwise — under section 70.2,

    • (a) immediately issue an elevator receipt for the grain and any screenings that he or she is required to report; and

    • (b) on surrender of the bill of lading relating to the grain, together with evidence of the payment of the charges accrued on the grain before its receipt into the elevator, deliver the elevator receipt to or on the order of the holder of the bill of lading.

  • Marginal note:Receipt for grain containing excessive moisture or intermixed with other material

    (2) Despite any provision of this Act relating to the delivery of grain of the same kind, grade and quantity as that referred to in an elevator receipt, if the operator of a licensed terminal elevator issues an elevator receipt for grain to which any grade would be assignable but for its excessive moisture or intermixture with another material removable by treatment, that operator, on the drying or treatment of the grain, as the case may be, shall recall the receipt, assign the grain a grade and issue a new elevator receipt for grain of that grade that is adjusted to the grain’s dried quantity or quantity remaining after the treatment.

  • Marginal note:Warning

    (3) The elevator receipt issued for grain referred to in subsection (2) on the receipt of the grain into a licensed terminal elevator shall state that the receipt is subject to recall and adjustment.

  • Marginal note:Grain owned by licensee

    (4) If the operator of a licensed terminal elevator becomes the owner of grain removed from screenings in that elevator, the operator may, with the Commission’s permission, issue an elevator receipt in his or her own name for the grain.
