Information for : Interested Parties in the Grain Industry.

REVISED PAGE FOR GR INSTRUCTION 918–6, AUX. 11 "INTERIM PROCEDURE FOR THE

DETERMINATION OF UNIFORMITY IN SHIPLOT GRAIN” I. Purpose

This Notice transmits a revised page 7 for insertion in the subject Auxiliary. 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. This revision also extends the length of time for which this inspection plan may be used. II. Effective date The revised page is effective on receipt.

Acting Assistant Chief,

Grain Inspection Branch. Attachment.

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%. 401.536 bu. U.S. No. 2 SRW Dkg. 0.5% (Sublot No. 4 is 10% or less of the

total lot).

*Additional material for question 17, p. 193.

IV. Effective date

This interim procedure shall become effective on November 17, 1974, and will remain in effect until further notice. Any previously written instructions pertaining to application of the “10 Percent Plan" are hereby cancelled.

This Auxiliary implements sections 26.14(b) (2) and (d) of the regulations. It does not establish a new or revised substantive rule.
