The Hog Carcass Grading Regulations establish 11 grades for hog carcasses in the province of Nova Scotia and require that a grader sign and issue a grade certificate for each carcass graded. The standards for each grade level are attached to the Regulations as schedules. The Regulations also stipulate that the Minister may assign a grader to an establishment if the establishment meets certain structural, operational and sanitation criteria.
The enabling statute for these Regulations is the Agriculture and Marketing Act, RSNS 1989, c 6.
