The revision was necessary to clarify that part (in terms of entire sublots or entire separately logged components) of a material portion can be discharged to reduce the off-grade portion to 10 percent or less of the total lot.

The revised page is effective on receipt.

GR Instruction 918-6
Aux. 11

However, when a material portion designation was the result of exceeding one or more of the conditions listed in section III E 3 of this Auxiliary, an entire sublot (s) or an entire component (s) (when logged separately) may be discharged so that the remaining off-grade sublots or separately logged components, singly or combined by weight, do not exceed the 10 percent allowance. When this action is taken and there is not a material portion for some other reason, an inspection certificate for one grade may be issued.

Example:

1. Declared grade U.S. No. 2 SHW.

2. Lot size 401,536 bushels (last S/L=41,536 bu.). 3. Sublot size 40,000 bushels.

4. Inspection results:

Sublots Nos. 1–3, U.S. No. 2 SRW Dkg 0.5%.

Sublot No. 4, U.S. No. 3 SRW Dkg 0.5% (FM 1.2).

Sublots Nos. 5-9, U.S. No. 2 SRW Dkg 0.5%.

Sublot No. 10, U.S. No. 2 SRW Dkg 1.0%.

5. Certification if none of the "off-grade" grain is discharged:

320,000 bu., U.S. No. 2 SRW Dkg 0.5%.

40.000 bu., U.S. No. 2 SRW Dkg 1.0%.

41.536 bu., U.S. No. 3 SRW Dkg 0.5%.

6. Certification if sublot No. 10 is entirely discharged and replaced with a new sublot of U.S. No. 2 SRW Dkg. 0.5%.

INTERIM PROCEDURE FOR THE DETERMINATION OF UNIFORMITY IN SHIPLOT GRAIN

I. Purpose

This Notice transmits an "Interim Procedure for the Determination of Uniformity in Shiplot Grain,” GR Instruction 918-6, Aux. 11 (commonly referred to as the 10 percent plan), for use at all elevators where the grade is determined after the grain is loaded aboard the ship.

11. General information

The interim procedure, in general, has been in use since 1961. It is being implemented so uniform instructions will be available for use by official inspection personnel at all locations in the United States where grain is graded after it is loaded aboard the ship. Because some differences in procedures have existed, the attached auxiliary may constitute minor changes in some ports. A draft of the interim procedure was distributed for comments and suggestions with GR Notice 1187 on August 20, 1971. Some of the comments and suggestions in response to GR Notice 1187 are included in the interim procedure. In addition, for the purposes of determining a material portion in wheat shiplots, the special grade "heavy" is not applicable unless specified in the declared grade.

III. Effective date

This Notice and GR Instruction 918-6. Aux. 11, are effective on November 17. 1974, for use at all elevators loading shiplot grain where the "Uniform Shiploading Plan," GR Instruction 918-6, Aux. 10, is not being used. Use of the attached auxiliary expires November 1, 1975, and the procedure may not be used after that dite. This Notice and GR Instruction 918-6, Aux. 11, implement section 26.14 of the regulations under the U.S. Grain Standards Act and do not establish a new or revised substantive rule.
