China has suspended clearance of canola imports from Canadian agribusiness Richardson International and will step up inspections on canola imports from Canada until further notice, the General Administration of Customs said on Thursday.

Richardson, the largest exporter of Canadian canola to China, said on Wednesday that its shipments met regulatory requirements.
