Poland has requested to be authorised to provide for a presentation of pig carcasses different from the standard presentation due to current normal commercial practices. In Poland, pig carcasses are presented with the flare fat, kidneys and/or diaphragm and without the external auditory canal.

Examination of that request revealed that the conditions for authorising a different presentation of pig carcasses in Poland are fulfilled. Poland should therefore be authorised to provide for a presentation of pig carcasses with the flare fat, kidneys and/or diaphragm and without the external auditory canal. The weight recorded for the carcasses should be adjusted accordingly to the weight for standard presentation.

Notwithstanding the standard presentation referred to Section B.III of Annex IV to Regulation (EU) No 1308/2013, the flare fat, the kidneys and the diaphragm need not be removed from pig carcasses before being weighed and graded whereas the external auditory canal may be removed. In order to establish quotations for pig carcasses on a comparable basis, the recorded hot weight shall be:

(a) reduced:

(1) for diaphragm by 0,23 %;

(2) for flare fat and kidneys by:

1,90 % for carcasses grade S and E,

2,11 % for carcasses grade U,

2,54 % for carcasses grade R,

3,12 % for carcasses grade O,

3,35 % for carcasses grade P;

(b) increased by 260 grams per carcass for both external auditory canals.’;
