To facilitate trade in private trade channels the Commodity Credit Corporation will disseminate general sales offering information via press release and FEDERAL REGISTER notice. Since carrying charges must be incorporated in statutory minimum prices for certain commodities and since such carrying charges are conveniently accrued on a monthly basis, a Monthly Sales List will be published in press release form. The Monthly Sales List will be completely revised and republished by press release at the beginning of each month and amended as necessary during the month. The Monthly Sales List, containing sales information for as many months of the fiscal year as is possible, will be published in full in the FEDERAL REGISTER at the beginning of each fiscal year (July 1), and will be amended in the FEDERAL REGISTER from time to time during the fiscal

year to reflect intra-month and end-ofmonth changes. The publication annually in the FEDERAL REGISTER of the Monthly Sales List is designed to minimize the repetitive publication of price information and shall not be construed as an annual sales policy commitment by CCC. The Commodity Credit Corporation reserves the right to make any amendments deleting or adding to the provisions of the Monthly Sales List or changing prices or methods of sale, including but not limited to, changes in the minimum price percentage, markups and carrying charges. These lists are issued for the purpose of public information and do not constitute an offer to sell by the Commodity Credit Corporation or an invitation for offers to purchase from the Corporation. The Monthly Sales List will set forth either the prices or the pricing basis at which commodity holdings of the Commodity Credit Corporation are available for sale for domestic unrestricted use, for export, and redemption of payment-in-kind certificates. Information concerning barter and credit will also be included. To be placed on the mailing list for the Monthly Sales List press release, applications should be made to the Director, Grain Division, ASCS, USDA, Washington, D.C. 20250.
