manner any of the difference between 19 000 000 kilograms and the total

               (i)  the base quota held by that individual,

               (ii) the proportionate share of any base quota in which
that individual has an ownership interest through a corporation, a

and

               (iii)     any base quota in which the individual has an
ownership interest as a lessee of quota;

     (b)  the total base quota holding of a corporation, a partnership or

which base quota is allocated, or

               (ii) shares in a corporation in respect of which base

               (ii) when the combined total of the deceased producer's
quota and the recipient producer's quota exceeds the limit provided for
under subsection (8),

          if the transfer of the base quota arises by virtue of a joint
tenancy or a will, intestacy or a court order.

(14)  Unless otherwise permitted by the Board, a producer to whom a base
quota is 

     (a)  allocated or transferred, or

     (b)  offered under section 12(7)(a)

approval of the Board is sought relates to a production facility to which

quota in respect of the production facility.

(3)  An application to the Board for a transfer of a base quota under this
section shall be made prior to the completion of the sale or assignment of
