(a) Domestic shipments. Shipments of material (other than hydrocarbons, organic sulfur compounds and radioactive standards) intended for the United States, Mexico, and Canada are normally shipped prepaid parcel post (providing that the parcel does not exceed the weight limits as prescribed by postal laws and regulations) unless the purchaser requests a different mode of shipment, in which case the shipment will be sent collect. It is impractical for the Bureau to prepay shipping charges and add this cost to the billing invoice. Hydrocarbons, organic sulfur compounds, rubber compounding materials, viscometer calibrating oils, and radioactive standards are shipped express collect. No discounts are given to NBS Standard Reference Materials.

(b) Foreign shipments. Small shipments will be forwarded as a U.S. Goyernment shipment via International Parcel Post, providing that the parcel does not exceed the weight limits as prescribed by postal laws and regulations to foreign countries. Shipments exceeding the parcel post weight limit must be handled through an agent (shipping or brokerage firm) located in the United States as designated by the purchaser. Parcels will be packed for overseas shipment and forwarded via express collect to the U.S. firm designated as agent.

(c) Payment for domestic orders. Invoices for standard reference materials to be used within the United States of America are mailed when shipment is made. Remittances, made payable to the National Bureau of Standards, are required within thirty (30) days of shipment. Prepaid orders are accepted at the prices current on the date of receipt of the order.

(d) Payment for foreign orders. Remittances in payment of foreign orders must be made payable to the National Bureau of Standards, and are required in advance. These remittances are payable

in dollars. Prices for the materials are those current at the date of receipt of the order. $ 230.6 Standards out of stock.

The preparation of "renewals" is intended to be completed at the time each kind of material becomes exhausted, but owing to delays encountered in obtaining a proper grade of material, and for other reasons, this is not always possible. If orders are received for standard reference materials that are out of stock, notice will be mailed to that effect. The composition of a "renewal” will not usually be identical with that of its predecessor, but it will be quite similar, especially with regard to the characteristic constituent or constituents.

PART 240—BARRELS AND OTHER

CONTAINERS FOR LIME Sec. 240.1 Title of act. 240.2 Application. 240.3 Permissible sizes. 240.4 Definitions. 240.5 Required marking. 240.6 Tolerances.

AUTHORITY: The provisions of this Part 240 issued under sec. 4, 39 Stat. 531; 15 U.S.C. 240, unless otherwise noted.

SOURCE: The provisions of this Part 240 appear at 13 F.R. 8372, Dec. 28, 1948, unless otherwise noted. § 240.1

Title of act. The act, "Public Law 228, 64th Congress," approved August 23, 1916 (39 Stat. 530; 15 U.S.C. 237–242), entitled “An Act to standardize lime barrels,” shall be known and referred to as the “Standard Lime-Barrel Act." & 240.2 Application.

The rules and regulations in this part are to be understood and construed to apply to lime in barrels, or other containers packed, sold, or offered for sale for shipment from any State or Territory or the District of Columbia to any other State or Territory or the District of Columbia; and to lime in containers of less capacity than the standard small barrel sold in interstate or foreign commerce; and to lime imported in barrels from a foreign country and sold or offered for sale; also to lime not in barrels or containers of less capacity than the standard small barrel, sold, charged for, or purported to be delivered as a large or small barrel or a fractional part of said small barrel of lime, from any State or Territory or the District of Columbia to any other State or Territory or the District of Columbia. § 240.3 Permissible sizes.

Lime in barrels shall be packed only in barrels containing 280 pounds or 180 pounds, net weight. For the purposes of this section the word "barrel” is defined as a cylindrical or approximately cylindrical vessel, cask or drum. (Sec. 2, 39 Stat. 530; 15 U.S.C. 238)

& 240.4 Definitions,

(a) The term "container of less capacity than the standard small barrel,” as mentioned in section 3 of the law and as used in the rules and regulations in this part, is defined as any container not in barrel form containing therein a net weight of lime of less than 180 pounds.

(b) The term "label" as used in the rules and regulations in this part is defined as any printed, pictorial, or other matter upon the surface of a barrel or other container of lime subject to the provisions of this act, or upon cloth or paper or the like which is permanently affixed to it by pasting or in a similar manner.

(c) The term "tag" is defined as a tough and strong strip of cloth or paper or the like, bearing any printed, pictorial, or other matter, which is loose at one end and which is secured to a container of lime subject to the provisions of the act. (Sec. 3, 39 Stat. 530; 15 U. 3. C. 239) 8 240.5 Required marking.

(a) The lettering required upon barrels of lime by section 2 of the law shall be as follows: The statement of net weight shall be in bold-face capital letters and figures at least 1 inch in height and not expanded or condensed;

shall be clear, legible, and permanent, and so placed with reference to the other lettering that it is conspicuous. The name of the manufacturer of the lime and where manufactured, and, if imported, the name of the country from which it is imported, shall be in boldface letters at least one-half inch in height and not expanded or condensed, and shall be clear, legible, conspicuous, and permanent. None of these letters and figures shall be superimposed upon each other, nor shall any other characters be superimposed upon the required lettering or otherwise obscure it. All the above statements shall form parts of the principal label.

(b) The information required upon containers of lime of less capacity than the standard small barrel by section 3 of the law shall be included in a label: Provided, however, That in order to allow the utilization of second-hand or returnable bags made of cloth, burlap, or the like, such information may be upon a
