SmR: This is a report on the ]Basic Code of Fair Competition for
the Chlorine Control Apparatus Industry and Trade, which has
been presented by duly qualified and authorized representatives of
the Industry and Trade, complying with .stat ut ury requirements,
said to represent ninetly-five (95) percent in volume of sales of the
Industry and Trade which could be included in this Code.

The Associated Mlianufacturers of Chlorine Control Apparatus,
being truly- representative of the Chlorine Control Apparatus In-
dustry and Trade, has elcltedl to avail itself of the option. of sub-
mitting; a Basic C~ode of Fair Competition, as provided for in
Admlinistrative Order X-61, dated Jul~y 10, 1934.
This Code, which includes both th3e Industry and the Trade, comn-
stitutes a vertical Code. The words, Industry7 and T'rade, as applied
to this Code, become practically synonymous in that they intertwine
so closely that they cannot be referred to independlently; for example
the Industry, through the process of distributing, installing and
servicing the apparatus, becomesn-c the TPrade.
This Industry and Trade masnufactures for sale or lease and
installs and services apparatus and equipment to control the appli-
cation of chlorine and chlorine compounds for all purposes, includ-
ing the fields of sanitation and industry and parts thereof. The
apparatus must he so constructed that the meticulous dosage of
chlorine gas and chlorine compounds necessary in the sanitation
of water, sewage and industrial wastes is properly controlled. The
intelligent application of chlorine and its compounds is a vital factor
ini securinga a safe drinking water in areas afflicted by such public
catastro-phies as are occasioned by fire, ~flood or hurricane.
The figures furnished by thl~e Associated Mlanufacturers of Chlo-
rine Control Apparatus show that a comparatively steady demand
has existel ,for the products of this Industry and T'rade through
the depression period; and with the ever mecreasing standards for
the protection of life and health, there is definite indication of a
satisfactory future.


The followr\ine table has been prepared as the most co~nc~ise method
of prese~ntingb per'lt~inet, fud~or~s of this Indtustry and Trade:

of Fair Competition, as provided in Adm-inistrattive Order X-61i,
dated July 10, 1934.

The Deputy A~dmlinistrator in his final report to the Nrational In-
dustrial Recovery Board on said Code having found as herein set
forth andcJ on. the basis of all the proceedings in this matter;
It is found that
(a) Said Code is well designed to promote the policies and pur-
poses of Title II of the NP;ational Industrial Recovery Act, including
removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign
commerce which. tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will pro-
vide for the general welfare by promoting the organization of in-
dustry for the purpose of cooperative action among trade groups, by
inducing and maintaining united action of labor and management
under adequate gov~er~nmental sanctions and supervision, by elimi-
nating unfair com~petitivce practices, by promoting the fullest possible
utilization of the present proluctive capacity of industries, by avoid-
ing undue restriction of production (except as may be temporarily
required), by inlcrea~singr the conlsum~ption of indus~tr~ial and agricul-
tural products through inlcreasm~g purchassing power, by reducing
and relieving unemployment, by improving\.llb standards of labor, and
by otherwcpise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Industry mclnormlly employs not more than 50,000 emn-
ployees;; and is not classified by this Board as a major industry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all respects with thle per-
tin-ent provisions of said Title of said Act, including w~iithout limzita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section '7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thnereo0f; and that the applicant asso-
ciation is an industrial association truly representative of thet afore-
said Industry and Trade; and that said association imposest~ no in-
equitable restrictions on admission to memberships! therein.
(d) The Code is not designed to and will not permit monopolies
or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Code is not designed to and will not eliminate or oppress
small enterprises and will not operate to discriminate against then.
(f) Those engaged in. other steps~ of the economic process have
not been. deprived of the right to be heard prior to the effective date
of said Code.
F~or these reasons, therefore, this Code! has been approved.
