Background: Previous studies on self-reported weight accuracy have been criticized for insufficient methods and have included only young or middle-class adults. Self-reporting is more likely to be discontinued in clinical and research practices in older age groups. The cultural pressure that can lead young women to underestimate their weight, especially when they are overweight, may work differently in older women. If there are no measures for a service target for the audit period, the weighted service contribution is considered to be 100%. If you want all service destinations to be weighted in the same way, give them all a weighting of one. Arrival weight (landing weight) Determination of arrival weights. ECC and E.FCA. CC prescribing that weighing (and sampling) must take place no later than 14 calendar days (15 for the ACA) after introduction to the final destination port or, in the event of unforeseen complications, from the time the goods are available for weighing. Under eCC/E.FCA. Cc and GCA shippers have the right to appoint supervisors at their own expense. ECC and E.FCA.
CC provides that containers (packaged and bulk) can be transported and weighed to an inland destination, provided they are kept in the destination port no later than 14 calendar days after the final spill date and weighing (and collection) is done under independent control, at the buyer`s expense, no later than 7 calendar days after arrival in the country. The purpose of containerization is to minimize handling and the purpose of this clause is to allow recipients to bring the coffee as close as possible to its final destination, for example a roasting, without unnecessary manipulation. (If coffee is weighed in a roasting, then such weights can also be called plant weights.) GCA stipulates that coffee must be weighed in sachets within 15 days of availability at the destination port (land weight) or within 15 days of the date of the auction with buyers (plant weight). Bulk coffee must be weighed during unloading within 21 days of availability at the final destination or 21 days after receiving all U.S. government clearances (silo weight). However, the GCA approach is very different from that of ECF contracts in that it requires that the effective transaction contract specify when, where, how and by whom the coffee should be weighed for billing purposes, i.e. to balance responsibilities, including cost liability, at the time of the contract. If the coffee is removed from the prescribed weighing site or if the deadlines expire before the weigh-in, the net weight remains unchanged.
PackingECC and E.FCA. CC notes that coffee must be packaged in uniform, export-friendly natural fibre bags that comply with the legal requirements for food packaging materials and waste management in the European Union at the time the contract is concluded. This is important and exporters need to know what types and qualities of bags are acceptable, not only in the European Union, but also in other countries. Be sure not to confuse the destination port with the destination country, as the two may not always be the same. The European Directive on the Disposal of Packaging and Packaging Waste is available at www.europa.eu.int (official publications, EUR-Lex). See also the Codex Alimentarius Commission`s draft code for food transport at www.codexalimentarius.net and 12.07 Quality Control.GCA stipulates that coffee bags must be made from sisal, henequen, jute, bags or similar fabrics, without an inner lining or exterior coating.
