Foreign Trade Developments

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.
Questions can be referred to Thomas O'Connell, 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.

Germany, Federal Pepublic of TBT Notification 83.106

The German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry has proposed an
amendment to the regulation covering feeding stuffs (product covered feeding
stuffs). The specific provisions affected govern the trade in and the
prohibition of feeding stuffs containing noxious substances. The regulation
lays down a maximum content of aflatoxin B in feeding stuffs and provides that
it shall be prohibited to put such products on the market if this content is
exceeded. It furthermore establishes the maximum contents of the alpha and
beta isomers of Hexachlorocyclohexane in feeding stuffs with higher contents
of such noxious substances. The objective and rationale for this proposal is
the protection of public health. Final date for comments is September 6, 1983.
