Fertilizer Canada has launched a 45-day comment period for proposed changes to the Ammonia Code of Practice. CAAR invites retail members to review and submit their feedback to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by July 10, 2018. 

Fertilizer Canada’s Ammonia Code of Practice (Code) was first implemented in 2009 and provided a standardized approach to the safe and secure storage, handling and transportation of agricultural anhydrous ammonia. The Code was later revised in 2012, then in 2017 to incorporate the feedback of the first audit cycle and to address some of the challenges in compliance. Fertilizer Canada aims to revise the Code every 5 years in order to address concerns raised and to maintain its world-class status.

The Fertilizer Safety and Security Council’s Ammonia Code Working Group has been actively reviewing the Code to ensure that it continues to reflect best practices. In more recent discussions, there have been some concerns raised regarding the consistent implementation of site security means to prevent unauthorized access to the stored anhydrous ammonia. The next revision publication is scheduled for January 2022.
