The Canadian Grain Commission’s Canadian Identity Preserved Recognition System (CIPRS) is a voluntary program. It certifies that a company’s identity preserved system for the production, handling and transportation of specialty grains, oilseeds or pulses is effective.
As part of the CIPRS program, a grain company documents and demonstrates processes that control production from the grower through to labelling and shipping. CIPRS focuses on process control as the best means to ensure a grain company can deliver the right product to its customer every time. CIPRS ensures a company’s identity preserved quality management system meets the standard created by the Canadian Grain Commission. The standard is designed to be compatible with quality management systems such as ISO (International Organization for Standardization).
