Warehouse Charges and Delivery Obligations for Peanuts Forfeited to the Commodity Credit Corporation Through the Marketing Assistance Loan Program
Document Number: E6-9836
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-06-22
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Commodity Credit Corporation
This notice advises warehouse operators operating under a Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) Peanut Storage Agreement of provisions that may not be altered, even through changes made to the public tariff of the warehouse. When CCC transfers title to CCC-owned peanuts in store (i.e., to a third-party buyer), the storage and handling rates applicable to CCC must remain applicable to the transferee under the terms of the Peanut Storage Agreement. Also, warehouse operators must load out, or transfer instore, the total loan value of the peanuts represented on the warehouse receipt, calculated by using USDA's Price Table File for the applicable crop year. This value is not subject to a subsequent shrink factor. The delivery obligation created by issuing the warehouse receipt may not be altered for any reason or by any method, including public tariffs.
