Contoh (draft) Standar Filipina untuk Karet Alam

(Classification and grading of natural raw rubber sheets - DPNS 203:2013 ICS 83.040.10).
Klasifikasi dan Deskripsi Mutu (Classification and grade descriptions)
Natural rubber sheets shall be classified and graded according to Table 1.
Table 1 – Kelas and Mutu
Contoh dan Kriteria disesuaikan
Kesesuaian pengiriman untuk kontrak kelas ditetapkan hanya melalui inspeksi visual. Sepuluh persen dari banyaknya hal tersebut, akan dikenakan pemeriksaan. Selama pemeriksaan setiap satu bagian dalam buku sampel harus dibandingkan dengan satu lembar karet dilucuti dari interior bale. Kapan perubahan warna tidak hadir dan jika itu mustahil untuk strip satu lembar dari bale untuk perbandingan tersebut, karena pertimbangan harus diberikan untuk warna gelap yang melekat dalam karet terkompresi.Kecuali jika disepakati antara para pihak, kualitas arbitrase yang dilaksanakan berdasarkan aturan kontrak yang masing-masing organisasi mendukung akan didasarkan pada sampel internasional resmi.
 
Kemasan
Standar massa setiap Bale akan kg 33.33, kecuali dimana massa rendah ditetapkan dalam kontrak pembeli. Massa maksimum untuk setiap bale akan 50 kg. Masing-masing bale dalam pengiriman tertentu yang dicakup oleh satu bill of lading harus seragam massa, kecuali untuk lebih dari dua bale lebih rendah massa untuk menyediakan tepat kontrak massa.
 
Tanda and Label
Tanda berikut harus dicantumkan pada bal yang tertutup karet atau pada goni atau patch karet.
  • Nilai grade yang muncul pada dua sisi bale haruslah 20,3 cm karakter.Tanda perusahaan yang mengidentifikasi perusahaan pengirim pada dua sisi bale.
  • Tanda perusahaan yang mengidentifikasi perusahaan pengirim di dua sisi bale 12,7 cm karakter.
  • Banyak tanda identifikasi yang muncul tepat di bawah tanda perusahaan yang tidak kurang dari dua sisi bale 12,7 cm karakter. Angka – angka ini harus sama pada semua bale yang tercakup di Bill Of Loading yang sama. Nomor yang berbeda, harus digunakan untuk masing – masing Bill Of Loading terpisah yang banyak di kirim oleh Perusahaan Tunggal dan dimuat dalam tempat yang sama.
  • Menandai dengan cap atau cat yang digunakan tidak boleh tembus di bawah lembar pembungkus.
