WHEREAS THIS METHOD OF CALCULATION CALLS FOR FREQUENT ALTERATIONS TO THE LEVY IN QUESTION ; WHEREAS , IN VIEW OF THE NATURE OF THE PRODUCTS CONCERNED , IT IS ADVISABLE TO PROVIDE THAT THIS LEVY ONLY BE FIXED ONCE A QUARTER ;

WHEREAS SPECIAL PROVISIONS ARE NECESSARY FOR OCCASIONS WHEN ONE OF THE ELEMENTS FOR CALCULATING THE LEVY IS NOT KNOWN ;

WHEREAS PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE IN RESPECT OF SENSITIVE PRODUCTS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A SYSTEM OF IMPORT CERTIFICATES OR A MINIMUM PRICE SYSTEM WHICH IMPORTERS MUST UNDERTAKE TO OBSERVE ; WHEREAS FOR THE PROPER WORKING OF THESE SYSTEMS IT IS NECESSARY TO LAY DOWN THAT THE ISSUE OF IMPORT CERTIFICATES MUST INVOLVE THE LODGING OF A SECURITY GUARANTEEING THE UNDERTAKING TO IMPORT DURING THE PERIOD OF VALIDITY OF THE CERTIFICATES , AND THAT A FURTHER SECURITY SHALL BE LODGED GUARANTEEING THAT THE MINIMUM PRICE WILL BE RESPECTED BY THE IMPORTERS ; WHEREAS PROVISION SHOULD FURTHERMORE BE MADE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A FLOOR PRICE SYSTEM ;

WHEREAS , SIMILARLY , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR GRANTING A REFUND ON SUGAR INCORPORATED IN PROCESSED PRODUCTS FOR EXPORT TO NON-MEMBER COUNTRIES , DESIGNED TO COVER THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRICES FOR SUGAR RULING OUTSIDE AND INSIDE THE COMMUNITY ;

WHEREAS TO ENABLE PROCESSED PRODUCTS WITHOUT ADDED SUGAR TO HAVE ACCESS TO THE MARKETS OF NON-MEMBER COUNTRIES , PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR THE GRANTING OF AN EXPORT REFUND ; WHEREAS FOR PRODUCTS CONTAINING ADDED SUGAR THIS GENERAL REFUND SHOULD BE GRANTED ONLY IN CASES WHERE THE REFUND IN RESPECT OF THE ADDED SUGAR CONTAINED IN THE PRODUCTS WOULD NOT BE SUFFICIENT TO PERMIT THEIR EXPORTATION ;

WHEREAS THE COMMON PRICE AND LEVY MACHINERY MAY PROVE INADEQUATE IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES ; WHEREAS TO ENSURE THAT IN SUCH CASES THE COMMUNITY MARKET IS NOT LEFT COMPLETELY EXPOSED TO THE DISTURBANCES WHICH MIGHT RESULT , THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO TAKE ANY APPROPRIATE ACTION AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE ;

WHEREAS THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A SINGLE MARKET WOULD BE JEOPARDIZED BY THE GRANTING OF CERTAIN AIDS ; WHEREAS , THEREFORE , THE PROVISIONS OF THE TREATY WHICH ALLOW THE ASSESSMENT OF AIDS GRANTED BY MEMBER STATES AND THE PROHIBITION OF THOSE WHICH ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE COMMON MARKET SHOULD BE MADE TO APPLY TO PRODUCTS PROCESSED FROM FRUIT AND VEGETABLES ;

WHEREAS , IN ORDER TO FACILITATE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROPOSED MEASURES , A PROCEDURE SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR ESTABLISHING CLOSE COOPERATION BETWEEN MEMBER STATES AND THE COMMISSION WITHIN A MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE ;

ANNEX III

METHOD OF MEASURING DRY SOLUBLE RESIDUE IN PRODUCTS PROCESSED FROM FRUIT AND VEGETABLES BY REFRACTOMETRY

I . FIELD OF APPLICATION

APPLICATION OF THIS METHOD IS RELATED TO THE QUANTITY OF SUGAR PRESENT IN THE PRODUCT ANALYZED . THE PRESENCE OF AMINO-ACIDS , SALTS OF ORGANIC ACIDS , FLAVONOIDS AND MINERAL SUBSTANCES ALTERS THE REFRACTIVE INDEX .

II . DEFINITION

DRY SOLUBLE RESIDUE ( DETERMINED BY REFRACTOMETRY ) MEANS THE PERCENTAGE WEIGHT OF SUCROSE IN AN AQUEOUS SOLUTION OF SUCROSE WHICH , UNDER GIVEN CONDITIONS OF PREPARATION AND A GIVEN TEMPERATURE , HAS THE SAME REFRACTIVE INDEX AS THE PRODUCT ANALYZED . THIS PERCENTAGE IS EXPRESSED IN GRAMS PER 100 GRAMS .

III . PRINCIPLE

DEDUCTION OF THE DRY SOLUBLE RESIDUE CONTENT OF A PRODUCT FROM ITS REFRACTIVE INDEX .

IV . APPARATUS

ABBE TYPE REFRACTOMETER

THIS APPARATUS MUST HAVE A SCALE INDICATING THE PERCENTAGE WEIGHT OF SUGAR TO THE NEAREST 0,1 % . IT MUST BE SO CONSTRUCTED THAT SAMPLES CAN BE INTRODUCED EASILY AND QUICKLY . IT MUST BE EASY TO CLEAN .

THE REFRACTOMETER MUST HAVE A THERMOMETER WITH A SCALE EXTENDING FROM AT LEAST + 15 * C TO + 25 * C . IT MUST ALSO HAVE A WATER CIRCULATOR ENABLING MEASUREMENTS TO BE MADE AT A TEMPERATURE OF 20 * C MORE OR LESS 5 * C .

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS APPARATUS , AND IN PARTICULAR THOSE DEALING WITH CALIBRATION AND LIGHT SOURCE , MUST BE STRICTLY FOLLOWED .

V . METHOD

1 . PREPARATION OF SAMPLE

1.1 . LIQUID AND LIMPID PRODUCTS

MIX CAREFULLY AND PROCEED TO DETERMINATION

1.2 . SEMI-DENSE PRODUCTS , PUREES , FRUIT JUICES WITH MATTER IN SUSPENSION .

CAREFULLY MIX AN AVERAGE LABORATORY SAMPLE AND THEN HOMOGENIZE . STRAIN PART OF THE SAMPLE THROUGH DRY GAUZE FOLDED IN FOUR , REMOVE THE FIRST DROPS AND PROCEED TO DETERMINATION ON THE FILTRATE .

1.3 . DENSE PRODUCTS ( JAMS AND JELLIES )

IF THE HOMOGENIZED PRODUCT CANNOT BE USED DIRECTLY , WEIGH 40 G OF THE PRODUCT TO THE NEAREST 0,01 G IN 250 ML BEAKER AND ADD 100 ML OF DISTILLED WATER .

BOIL GENTLY FOR TWO OR THREE MINUTES , STIRRING WITH A GLASS ROD .

COOL , DECANT CONTENTS OF THE BEAKER INTO A GRADUATED 200 ML FLASK , BRING UP TO THE REQUIRED LEVEL WITH DISTILLED WATER AND MIX CAREFULLY . ALLOW TO STAND FOR 20 MINUTES , THEN STRAIN THROUGH A FOLDED FILTER OR A BUECHNER FUNNEL .

MAKE DETERMINATION IN THE FILTRATE

1.4 . FROZEN PRODUCTS

DEFROST AND REMOVE STONES OR PIPS AND CORES . MIX THE PRODUCT WITH THE LIQUID FORMED DURING DEFROSTING AND PROCEED AS IN 1.2 OR 1.3 .

1.5 . DRY PRODUCTS CONTAINING WHOLE FRUIT OR PIECES OF FRUIT

CUT PART OF THE LABORATORY SAMPLE INTO SMALL PIECES , REMOVE STONES OR PIPS AND CORES AND MIX CAREFULLY .

WEIGH 10 TO 20 G OF THE PRODUCT TO THE NEAREST 0,01 G IN A BEAKER . ADD DISTILLED WATER TO AT LEAST FIVE TIMES THE WEIGHT OF THE PRODUCT . HEAT IN A WATER BATH FOR 30 MINUTES , STIRRING OCCASIONALLY WITH A GLASS ROD . WHEN COOL HOMOGENIZE CONTENTS OF THE BEAKER AND POUR INTO A GRADUATED 100 TO 250 ML MEASURING FLASK ( DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF THE SAMPLE ) . BRING TO THE REQUIRED LEVEL AND MIX CAREFULLY . AFTER 20 MINUTES FILTER INTO A DRY CONTAINER AND MAKE DETERMINATION ON THE FILTRATE .

2 . DETERMINATION

BRING THE SAMPLE TO THE MEASUREMENT TEMPERATURE ( + 20 * C ) BY IMMERSING THE CONTAINER IN A WATER BATH OF THE REQUIRED TEMPERATURE .

PLACE A SMALL SAMPLE ON THE LOWER PRISM OF THE REFRACTOMETER , TAKING CARE TO ENSURE THAT THE SAMPLE COVERS THE GLASS SURFACE UNIFORMLY WHEN THE PRISMS ARE PRESSED AGAINST EACH OTHER . MEASURE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE APPARATUS USED .

READ THE PERCENTAGE WEIGHT OF SUCROSE TO THE NEAREST 0,1 % .

MAKE AT LEAST TWO DETERMINATIONS ON THE SAME PREPARED SAMPLE .

VI . EXPRESSION OF RESULTS

1 . CALCULATION AND FORMULATION

THE DRY SOLUBLE RESIDUE CONTENT , CONVENTIONALLY EXPRESSED IN GRAMS OF SUCROSE PER 100 GRAMS OF PRODUCT , IS CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS : THE PERCENTAGE SUCROSE CONTENT INDICATED BY REFRACTOMETRY IS USED DIRECT . IF THE READING IS MADE AT A TEMPERATURE OTHER THAN + 20 * C , CORRECT AS INDICATED IN THE ATTACHED TABLE .

IF MEASUREMENT HAS BEEN MADE ON A DILUTE SOLUTION , THE DRY SOLUBLE RESIDUE CONTENT IS EQUAL TO

M BY 100/E

M BEING THE WEIGHT ( IN GRAMS ) OF DRY SOLUBLE RESIDUE PER 100 GRAMS OF PRODUCT INDICATED BY THE REFRACTOMETER AND E THE WEIGHT ( IN GRAMS ) OF PRODUCT PER 100 ML OF SOLUTION .
