No. 14036/19/I

SOFIA, August 18, 1982.
MR. MINISTER,
I have the honor to confirm in concrete form, by this note, the Bulgaria.

Confirmation by following provisional commercial agreement between our respective governments:

Bulgaria will accord to goods-natural or manufactured products of the United States and the United States will accord to goodsnatural or manufactured products of Bulgaria in all respects and unconditionally the most favored nation treatment. This treatment shall apply to all goods, from whatever place arriving, including goods destined for consumption, or reexportation or in transit.

The stipulations of the present agreement shall not extend to the treatment, which is accorded by the United States to the commerce of Cuba, under the provisions of the commercial convention concluded between the United States and Cuba on December 11, 1902, or the provisions of any other commercial convention, which hereafter may be concluded between the United States and Cuba. The same stipulations similarly will not apply to the treatment, which is accorded to the commerce between the United States and the Panama Canal Zone or any dependency of the United States, or to the commerce of the dependencies of the United States with one another, under existing or future laws.

Nothing in this agreement shall be deemed as a limitation of the right of either of the high contracting parties to impose prohibitions or restrictions of a sanitary character, which either party considers necessary, destined to protect human, animal or plant life, or regulations for the enforcement of police or revenue laws.

The present agreement will enter into force on the 18th of August 1932 and shall continue to be in force until superseded by a definitive treaty of commerce and navigation, or until denounced by one of the two Contracting Parties by advance notice of three months. If, however, either of the parties should be prevented by any future action of its legislature from executing the conditions of this agreement, the obligations thereof shall lapse. I take this opportunity, Mr. Minister, to express my high respect.

Arrangement between the United States of America and the Netherlands

for the reciprocal recognition of load-line certificates. Effected by exchange of notes, signed August 26, 1931, November 16, 1931, March 18, 1932, April 22, 1932, June 29, 1932, and September 30, 1932.

The Acting Secretary of State (Castle) to the Netherland Chargé d'Affaires ad interim (Van Hoorn)

DEPARTMENT OF STATE,

Washington, August 26, 1931. SIR:

Further reference is made to the Legation's note No. 113, dated the Netherlands for the January 20, 1931," enclosing copies of the Netherland Shipping Act reciprocabe recognition and Royal Decree and Order in Council relating to load lines for the consideration of this Government in relation to its proposal to the Netherland Government to conclude a reciprocal load line agreement with this Government pending the coming into force of the International Load Line Convention.

Note has been made of the Legation's statement that the laws, rules and regulations pertaining to load lines for vessels now enforced by the Netherland Government are identical with those enforced by the Government of Great Britain, with the sole exception of the rules and regulations pertaining to the carriage of deck cargoes of wood goods.

The competent authorities of this Government consider that the 1906 rules of the British Board of Trade, concerning load lines, are as effective as the United States Load Line Regulations for the determination of load lines on ordinary merchant vessels. The rules of the Netherland Government for determining the load lines of vessels with wood cargoes have been examined by these authorities and have likewise been found to be as effective as the rules contained in the United States Load Line Regulations applicable to vessels carrying wood cargo on deck.

Pending the coming into effect of the International Load Line Convention in the United States and the Netherlands, the competent authorities of the Government of the United States are prepared to recognize the load line marks and the certificate of such marking of merchant vessels of the competent authorities of the Netherland Government as equivalent to their own load line marks and certificates of marking: provided, that the load line marks are in accordance with the load line certificates; that the hull and superstructures of

the vessel certificated have not been so materially altered since the
issuance of the certificate, as to affect calculations on which the load
line was based, and that alterations have not been made so that the-

(1) Protection of openings,
(2) Guard Rails,
(3) Freeing Ports,

(4) Means of Access to Crews Quarters,
have made the vessel manifestly unfit to proceed to sea without
danger to human life.

It will be understood that on the receipt of a note from you to the effect that the competent authorities of the Netherland Government will give full recognition to the load line marks made and the certificates issued by the competent authorities of this Government and expressing the Netherland Government's concurrence in the foregoing understanding, the reciprocal agreement will become effective. Accept, Sir, the renewed assurances of my high consideration.

Pursuant to instructions from the Minister of Foreign Affairs at The Hague, I beg leave to transmit herewith four copies of the Royal Decree of October 8, 1931,2 published in the Collection of Official Documents ("Staatsblad ") No. 414, by which the laws, rules and regulations pertaining to load lines for vessels now enforced by the United States Government are recognized by the Netherlands Government.

* See appendix, p. 1763.

I am further requested to inform Your Excellency that the Netherlands Government has designated the following bureaus as private investigation bureaus recognized in accordance with the “Schepenwet” (Netherlands Merchant Shipping Act of July 1, 1909):

1. Lloyd's Register of British and Foreign Shipping;
2. British Corporation for the survey and registry of shipping;

LÉGATION DES PAYS-BAS.

Washington, D.C., 18 March 1932. SIR:

Pursuant to instructions received from my Government, I have the honor to enclose herewith copy of the Royal Decree of January 29, 1932,3 (Official Gazette No. 25) regarding load line regulations in the Netherlands, purporting modification of the Royal Decree of September 22, 1909, which was amended last by Royal Decree of November 4, 1926 and copy of which was transmitted to Your Excellency by my note of January 20, 1931, No. 113.

According to this new Decree in certain cases a somewhat more lenient rule may be adopted in the Netherlands with regard to load line marks, provided this will not endanger ship and crew and will be in conformity with the minimum requirements as stipulated in the International Load Line Convention of London of July 5, 1930.

I may remark at the same time that the Netherland Government, according to this measure, has already put into force the stipulations of the London Convention before it has been ratified.

Please accept, Sir, the renewed assurances of my highest consideration.

J. H. van ROYEN THE HONORABLE THE SECRETARY OF STATE
