Trade Rules


The US Pea & Lentil Trade Association (USPLTA), the membership organization representing the trade portion of the pulse industry, adopted Arbitration Rules (May 15, 1963) and Trade Rules (October 22, 1994) to govern and maintain a consistent business setting in all transactions within the pulse industry. Both sets of rules are reviewed annually at the fall trade convention where amendments are proposed and voted on.
