WHEREAS,  the  same  Sugar  Order  explicitly  authorizes  SRA  to  classify  all imported fructose as “B” or Domestic, “C” or Reserved and “D” as World Market fructose  prior  to their  release  from  BOC,  as  the  existing  demand  and  supply situation so warrants;

WHEREAS, SRA has received several requests to export their advance booked imported fructose currently held by the BOC;
