115.2. the identity of a variety shall be evaluated, comparing plants with the plants of the original variety seed field; and

115.3. all plants of other varieties and non-characteristic to the variety shall be determined and accounted, they shall be noted with markers.

116. Observations shall be carried out during the whole period of vegetation in accordance with the official descriptions of the variety. On carrying out the evaluation of fields, critical periods shall be observed when the presence of plants of other varieties and plants non-characteristic to the variety may be distinguished the most. During this period each field shall be inspected at least once a week.

117. The sample shall not be in conformity with the varietal purity requirements, if the number of the plants non-conforming with the variety, depending on the number of the evaluated plants for oats, barley, triticale and wheat in post-control exceeds the one indicated in Annex 23 to this Regulation, but to buckwheat and rye in post-control it exceeds the one specified in Annex 24 to this Regulation.
