Chapter 10. Rules and Regulations Providing for the Certification of Seeds and Other Materials Used for Plant Propagation Purposes

2VAC10-10-80. Responsibility for compliance.

The certifying agency shall implement certification and insofar as practicable enforce certification standards; however, each grower, producer, or handler of any class of certified seed shall be responsible for compliance with all requirements of certification as well as all requirements of the Virginia Seed Law (§ 3.1-262 et seq. of the Code of Virginia) and the Federal Seed Act (7 USCS § 1551 et seq.). Sale of any class of certified seed intentionally in violation of any of the foregoing may serve as a basis for revoking the responsible party's right to grow, produce or sell classes of certified seed.
