The Commodity Exchange Price Provisions (CEPP) are used in conjunction with either the Common Crop Insurance Policy Basic Provisions or the Area Risk Protection Insurance Basic Provisions, along with the Crop Provisions for the following crops: barley, canola (including rapeseed), corn, cotton, grain sorghum, rice, soybeans, sunflowers, and wheat.
In accordance with section 1 of either the Common Crop Insurance Policy Basic Provisions or the Area Risk Protection Insurance Basic Provisions, the CEPP specifies how and when the projected and harvest price components will be determined by crop. There are two sections contained in the CEPP:
- Section I: General Information. This section contains information relevant for all applicable crops, including definitions and common policy material.
- Section II: Price Definitions. This section contains crop-specific projected and harvest price definitions and specifications, including commodity exchanges, contracts, and discovery periods.
For CEPP documents that are not updated, the prior year's documents carry to the current year.
All the CEPP documents linked below except the Peanuts CEPP are updated in a new format for the 2023 crop year. Substantive text changes are made to all documents except the Section II Canola document and the Peanuts CEPP. The changes to each document are listed in a summary of changes page at the top of each document. RMA may elect to update CEPP documents at a future date. These future updates will occur no later than November 30, 2022.
