Incoming Inspection

Voluntary incoming inspection procedures were originally developed by a committee of growers and processors under the auspices of the California Pistachio Commission. These procedures have subsequently been reviewed and revised by the Technical Subcommittee of the Administrative Committee for Pistachios. Grower deliveries are sampled, processed, and analyzed by the procedures outlined in this manual to determine payable weights for contractual and assessment purposes.
