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
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 Wilson, USDA Technical Office, Room 5530 South Agriculture
Building, Washington, D.C. 20250; or phone (202) 382-1318. Anyone interested
in commenting on the proposals should include the TBT Notification Number in
their communication.

Finland TBT Notification 84.59. The Finish Ministry of Trade and Industry
has proposed a Decree (product covered food) on contaminants and impurities
in food products. The proposal concerns sale and import of food products
containing contaminants (pesticide residues, heavy metals, etc.) and
impurities (insects and filth) and the use of such products in the manufacture
of other food products. The proposed regulation covers definitions for
contaminants and impurities which are to a great extent identical with the
definitions given in Codex Alimentarius. The proposal will authorize the
ministry of trade and industry and the ministry of agriculture and forestry to
give more precise specifications and directives. The objective and rationale
for the proposal are consumer protection and human health. Final date for
comments on the proposal is May 31, 1984.

Finland TBT Notification 84.60. The Finish Ministry of Trade and Industry
has proposed a Decree (product covered food) on contaminants and impurities
in certain food products. The proposal includes the maximum residue limits of

contaminants (pesticide residues, heavy metals, etc.) and impurities (insects
and filth) in certain food products. If the permitted maximum.residue limits
of contaminants are not given in annex 1, the limits recommended in Codex
Alimentarius are applicable. The list of contaminants given in annex 1 (p.
18) is more extensive and accurate than the existing list (directive of the
National Board of Trade and Consumer Interests 3050/51/79). A list of
impurities is given in annex 2 (p. 1). The objective and rationale for the
proposal are consumer protection and human health. Final date for comments on
the proposal is May 31, 1984.

Finland TBT Notification 84.61. The Finish Ministry of Trade and Industry
is proposing a Directive (product covered food) for sampling, analysing and
judgment of food lots for control of pesticide residues in food products. The
proposal gives instructions about how the sampling is to be carried out. The
Ministry of Trade and Industry has found it necessary to write down the
prevalent practice applied as a directive. The objective and rationale for
the proposal are consumer protection and human health. Final date for
comments on the proposal is May 31, 1984.

Spain. The Technical Office received a copy of recent Decree on Sanitary
Regulations for meat establishments as well as labeling information for
