A committee of the board of Wheat Quality Australia, the Wheat Classification Council (the Council), establishes and maintains Australia’s wheat variety classification system.

The Council defines common wheat classes and their quality attributes using the wheat variety classification system and the strategic and operational framework in which classification operates.

Council recommendations adopted by Wheat Quality Australia are captured in the Classification Guidelines, which describe the classification process.

The Council Charter provides a clear statement of the obligations of the Council, its roles, responsibilities and functions, and the relationship between the Council and Wheat Quality Australia.

The Classification Guidelines also direct the Variety Classification Panel (the Panel) in assessing wheat varieties to make classification decisions.
