TECHNICAL OFFICE


Notice of Foreign Proposals Concerning Standards in Agriculture. As required
of all signatories to the GATT Standards Code, the following notifications of
foreign proposed standards-related rules have been provided for the
S information and comment of interested agencies and firms. The Technical
Office invites inquiries from anyone who believes that any of the proposed
regulations notified under this heading could cause a trade problem. From
time to time we also receive information through our embassies in foreign
countries, as is the case this week. Request for copies or questions can be
referred to Carolyn Fillmore Wilson, USDA Technical Office, Building 1072
BARC East, Beltsville, MD. 20705; or telephone (301) 344-2651. After
reviewing a particular proposal, anyone interested in commenting on it should
include the TBT Notification Number in their communication.

Austria TBT Notification 85.175 The Austria Federal Office of Weights,
Measures and Surveying has proposed an ordinance (product covered measuring
instruments for cereal grains) covering measuring instruments which concerns
regulations for the verification of measuring instruments used for the
determination of the hectolitre mass of cereal grains. The ordinance contains
mainly detailed technical prescriptions regarding the construction of the
measuring instruments and information on the correct performance of the
measurement. The objective and rationale for the proposal is consumer
information. Final date for comments as soon as possible.

Japan TBT Notification 85.178 The Japanese Ministry of International Trade
and Industry and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries have
proposed an amendment (product covered specific consumer products) to the
Consumer Product Safety Law. Specific products under regulation by the law
shall be classified into the following two classes: (a) "first-class"
specific products products which are recognized to be difficult for certain
manufacturers or importers to ensure quality to prevent injury to the life or
body of the general consumer; (b) "second-class" specific products those
products other than "first-class" specific products. As regards the
"first-class" specific products, the existing rules on
government-certification (inspection or registration and type-approval system)
shall continue to be applied. As regards the "second-class" specific products
self-certification system shall be newly introduced as follows: Manufacturers
or importers of "second-class" specific products may affix the "S" mark (sale
of specific products without which is prohibited) by themselves if they make
certain notifications to the government and certify conformity to the safety
standards by themselves. The objective and rationale for the proposal is to
improve access to Japanese markets (transition from government-certification
to self-certification). There will be no commenting period at this time.
However, enough commenting period will be provided when the relevant draft
ordinances which stipulate the detail of this amendment are notified.

India TBT Notification 85.193 The Indian Standards Institution has proposed
revisions of specifications (product covered milk powder) for milk powder
and skim milk powder. The proposal covers the requirements for, packaging of,
and the methods of sampling and test for milk powder and skim milk powder made
from the milk of cow or buffalo or a mixture thereof. In this revision
various requirements have been updated. The objective and rationale for the
proposal is consumer protection.

Netherlands TBT Notification 85.197 The Netherlands Ministry of Welfare,
Health and Cultural Affairs has proposed a draft decree (product covered -
particle board) on a maximum formaldehyde content of particle board, in order
to limit the emission of formaldehyde. Furniture containing particle board Is
not included in the draft decree. Particle board is also only allowed to
contain fungicides registered under the Dutch Pesticide
Act 1962. The objective and rationale for the proposal is human health.
Final date for comments on the proposal is January 31, 1986.
