  •  (1) For the purposes of this section, vessel means any ship, boat or other means of transport used or designed to be used in water navigation.

  • (2) No person shall load or complete the loading of grain or a grain product aboard a vessel unless

    • (a) prior to the loading of the grain or grain product and, if required by an inspector for the purpose of determining if the vessel is infested or constitutes or could constitute a biological obstacle to the control of a pest, during the loading, the vessel is inspected and approved for loading, in writing, by an inspector; or

    • (b) an inspector advises that an inspection and approval of the vessel is not required because the inspector has reasonable grounds to believe that the vessel is not infested or does not or could not constitute a biological obstacle to the control of a pest.

  • (3) Where the Minister or an inspector believes on reasonable grounds that the vessel that is to receive the grain or grain product is or could be infested or constitutes or could constitute a biological obstacle to the control of a pest, any inspector may require the owner or person having the possession, care or control of the vessel

    • (a) to treat or clean the vessel; and

    • (b) to treat, move or dispose of any thing found on or in the vessel.
