Directive No. 14/1981/KkE 14/KKM of the Minister of Foreign Trade

          On the implementation of Decree No. 36/1980./3.IX./MT on the promulgation of the International Dairy Arrangement, done at Geneva on 12 April 1979.

          By virtue of powers conferred by the provisions of Section 3 of Decree No. 36/1980./3.IX/MT on the promulgation of the International Dairy Arrangement (hereinafter:  the Arrangement) — the following are decreed:

Section 1

          When importing or exporting products enumerated in Annexes I-III of the Arrangement, the provisions for minimum prices contained in the Annexes should be applied by the company authorized to carry on foreign trade activity, in determining the contents of the foreign trade contract.

Section 2

          The company authorized to carry on foreign trade activity will be directly informed of modifications effected in the minimum prices according to paragraph 3(a) of Article 3 of Annex I of the Arrangement.

Section 3

          Skimmed milk powder and buttermilk powder, denatured or otherwise made unfit for human consumption, for purposes of animal feed, may be imported also at prices below the minimum price.

Section 4

1.       Skimmed milk powder and buttermilk powder, not denatured or otherwise made unfit for human consumption, can be imported at prices below the minimum price for purposes of animal feed only.  Skimmed milk powder imported at prices below the minimum price must be denatured or otherwise made unfit for human consumption after customs clearance, before consumption.

2.       Denaturing or otherwise making unfit for human consumption can be effected by adding meat, bone, blood, fish, lucerne (alfalfa), soya or other fodder meals, or fats of animal and vegetable origin, or any other procedure which results in the forage falling under Tariff No. 23.09 of the Trade Customs Tariff.

3.       Customs clearance for home use of the dutiable goods specified in paragraph 1 above can be initiated only at the customs office regionally competent according to the premises of the company which carries out denaturing, mixing, or preparation for purposes of animal feed.  The person presenting the customs declaration should indicate that the purchase was effected below the minimum price, and should declare that the dutiable goods will be used for purposes of animal feed only.

4.       In the case of a declaration according to paragraph 3 above, the dutiable goods will be classified by the customs office in heading No. 04.02-03 of the Trade Customs Tariff (“Powdered milk and cream, unfit for human consumption, whether or not denatured, not containing added sugar”);  and in a clause inserted on the declaration form, the customs office stipulates that in accordance with the provisions of the present Directive, it is prohibited to use the goods before carrying out denaturing or otherwise making the goods unfit for human consumption.

5.       Denaturing or otherwise making the dairy products specified in paragraph 1 unfit for human consumption must be reported to the regionally competent customs office not alter than 10 days before starting the procedure, indicating at the same time the proportion of materials to be used, the way, place and time of the procedure.  On the basis of this notification, denaturing is checked by the customs office on the premises of the company. 

6.       If milk powder cleared at the customs with the obligation of denaturing or otherwise making it unfit for human consumption is used without fulfilling this obligation, the person concerned will be held responsible under the law on minor offences, or the criminal law, according to the specific case.

Section 5

          This Directive comes into force on the day of its promulgation.


Appendix to the Hungarian Notification

          In Hungary, skimmed milk powder used for animal feeding is denatured or made unfit for human consumption not in two, but only in one step because of practical reasons.  The denaturing takes place right when mixing or preparing the animal feedstuff, according to the standards and methods here attached.

          In Hungary the following methods should be applied to prepare animal feedstuff with the use of skimmed milk powder.

Switzerland

          Skimmed milk powder may be exported from the customs territory of Switzerland to third countries:

A.       Either, after the competent Swiss authorities have ensured that the skimmed milk powder has been denatured according to any one of the following processes:

1.       By the addition, per 100 kgs. of skimmed milk powder, of 2.5 kgs. of lucerne meal or grass meal, containing not less than 70 per cent of particles not exceeding 300 microns, uniformly distributed throughout the mixture.
 

2.       By the addition of finely milled alfalfa flour (98 per cent to pass mesh 60, equivalent to 50 United States standard), in a proportion of 2 to 4 parts per 100 and of phenolphthalein in a proportion of 1:20,000 (1 gr. per 20 kgs. of milk).
 

3.       By the addition, in the proportion of 20 per 100 by weight of the product treated (80 per 100 by weight of milk powder and 20 per cent of the denaturing agent) of a mixture composed of 80 per cent bran and 20 per cent potato flour, rice flour or other common starch (at least 10 per cent to pass mesh 60, equivalent to 50 United States standard), with phenolphthalein in the proportion of 1:20,000.
 

4.       By the addition of, for each 100 kgs. of skimmed milk powder, a minimum of 35 kgs. of undeodorized fish meal and 200 grs. of carbonate of iron or sulphate of iron and:
 

(a)      1.5 kgs. of activated carbon;
 

(b)      or 100 grs. of mixture composed of four fifths of yellow tartrazine (E 102) and one fifth of patent blue V (E 131);
 

(c)      or 20 grs. of cochineal red A (E 124);
 

(d)      or 40 grs. of patent blue V (E 131).
 

5.       By the addition of, for each 100 kgs. of skimmed milk powder, a minimum of 40 kgs. of undeodorized fish meal and 300 grs. of carbonate of iron or sulphate of iron.
 

6.       By the addition of, for each 100 kgs. of skimmed milk powder, a minimum of 4.5 kgs. of fish oil or fish liver oil and 300 grs. of carbonate of iron or sulphate of iron.
 

The fish meal noted in processes 4 and 5 must contain at least 25 per cent of particles with dimension below 80 microns.  In processes 4, 5 and 6, the iron salts have to contain at least 30 per cent of particles of a size lower than 80 microns.  The colouring matters have to contain the following percentages of the pure product:
 

—     at least 30 per cent for cochineal red A (E 124);
 

—      at least 25 per cent for the other colouring matters:  colouring matters have to contain at least 30 per cent of particles having a size lower than 80 microns; the acidity of fish oil calculated in oleic acid has to be equal to at least 10 per cent.
 

The products added to skimmed milk powder, according to processes 4, 5 and 6 have to be uniformly distributed as regards in particu­lar the activated carbon, the iron salts and the colouring matters;  two samples of 50 grs. each, taken at random in a lot of 25 kgs., must give by chemical determination the same results within the limits of errors admitted by the analysis method used.
 

7.       Dye to be added to liquid skimmed milk before drying at the rate of 2 to 3 ozs. per 100 gallons of milk (12.5 to 18.7 grs. per  hectolitre).  The dye to be one of the following colours:
 

English Standard Index Nos.
Lissamine green 44.090,  42.095,  44.025
Tartrazine 19.140

Combined with

(a)           Brilliant blue F.C.F.

42.090

or

(b)           Green B.S.

44.090
Cochineal 77.289
Brilliant blue/F.C.F. 42.090

 

8.       By the addition of meat and bone meal in a proportion of  2 to 4 parts of skimmed milk powder.
 

The bags or containers in which the denatured powder is packed will be labelled “For Animal Feed Only”.

B.       Or, after its incorporation in compound or mixed stockfoods of a kind falling within item 23.09 of the Harmonized System.
