(b) Conduct of meetings

(c) Approval of award
No award or agreement resulting from any such arbitration or mediation shall be effective unless and until approved by the Secretary of Agriculture, or such officer or employee of the Department of Agriculture as may be designated by him, and shall not be approved if it permits any unlawful trade practice or any unfair method of competition.
(d) Exemption from antitrust laws
No meeting so held and no award or agreement so approved shall be deemed to be in violation of any of the antitrust laws of the United States.
