Declaration shall be the licensee named on the validated export license. The address of the exporter (number, street, place, state) shall also be shown. (On Form 7513, if an authorized agent is representing the exporter, the name of the exporter as defined herein should be shown on the line labeled “For account of” where “Principal or seller" is indicated below the line on the form.)
(2) Exporter's Employer Identification Number. Exporters (or their agents shall report the exporter's Internal Revenue Service Employer Identification Number (EIN). If no internal Revenue Service EIN has been assigned, the exporter's Social Security Number (SSN), preceded by the symbol “SS,” should be reported. The exporter's SSN shall be reported if, and only if, no Internal Revenue EIN has been assigned to the exporter. If neither an Internal Revenue Service EIN nor an SSN has been assigned, for example, in case of a foreign entity as the exporter, the EIN or SSN reporting requirement does not apply.
(e) Agent of exporter (forwarding agent). The name and address of the duly authorized forwarding agent (if any) of the exporter shall be stated. (See 830.4.) (On Form 7513, the information as to agent (if any) should be shown on the line labeled "Exporter,” where “Actual shipper or agent” is indicated below the line on the form.)
(f) Ultimate consignee. The name and address (place, country) of the ultimate consignee whether by sale the United States or abroad or by consignment shall be stated on the export declaration. For exports to foreign countries, the ultimate consignee shall be the same person so designated in the validated export license or authorized to be ultimate consignee under the applicable general license in conformity with Export Administration Regulations.
(g) Inte nediate consignee. The name and address of the intermediate consignee (if any) shall be stated. For exports to foreign countries, the intermediate consignee shall be the person named as such in the validated export license or authorized to act as such under the applicable general license and in conformity with the Export Ad
ministration Regulations. If there is no intermediate consignee, the word "none" shall be entered on the Shipper's Export Declaration. (On Form 7513 the name and address of the intermediate consignee (if any) in a foreign country must be shown below the description of commodities across columns 1 through 6.)
(h) Foreign Port of unloading. For shipments by vessel and by air the foreign port and country of unloading (i.e., the foreign port and country at which the merchandise will be unlad-en from the exporting carrier) shall be shown on the Shipper's Export Declaration in addition to the country of ultimate destination. The reporting of “op tional” ports of unloading is not permissible except as provided in the Export Administration Regulations. 4 Where optional ports of unloading are named on the Shipper's Export Declaration under the permissible conditions, a photocopy, carbon, or other legible copy of the originally filed Shipper's Export Declaration indicating the actual port of unloading shall be filed by the exporter or his agent with the Customs Director as soon as the actual port of unloading is known to the exporter. (See $30.16 of these regulations.) Information as to port of unloading is required for shipments by vessel and air only.
(i) Country of destination. Country of destination shall be reported on the Shipper's Export Declaration in terms of the names designated in Schedule C E, Classification of Country and Territory Designations for U.S. Export Statistics, as follows:
(1) For shipments under validated export licenses, the country of ultimate destination shown
the export decaration shall conform to the country of ultimate destination as shown on the license.
(2) For shipments not moving under validated export license, the country of ultimate destination as known to the exporter at the time or exportation shall be shown on the export declaration. “Country of ultimate destination” means the country in which the goods are to be consumed or further
4 See Export Administration Regulations. (See footnote 2 to $30.2)
processed or manufactured. The country to which the goods are being shipped is not the country of ultimate destination for purposes of preparing the Shipper's Export Declaration if the exporter has knowledge at the time the goods leave the United States that they are intended for reexport or transshipment in their present form to another known country. For goods shipped to Canada, Panama, Hong Kong, Belgium or The Netherlands for example, special care should be exercised before reporting these countries as the ultimate destination, since these are countries through which merchandise from the United States is frequently transshipped. If the shipper does not know the ultimate destination of the goods, the country of destination to be shown on the export declaration is the last country, as known to the exporter at the time of shipment from the United States, to which the goods are to be shipped in their present form. (For instructions as to the reporting of country of destination for vessels sold or transferred from the United States to foreign ownership, see 830.33.)
(j) Marks and numbers. For purposes of identification of the export declaration with the merchandise it covers, the marks, numbers, or other identification shown on the packages should be inserted. This information is not required for shipments by mail inasmuch as the declaration is presented to the Postmaster with the packages being mailed.
(k) Number and kind of packages. The number and kind of packages (i.e., boxes, barrels, baskets, bales, etc.) shall be stated.
(1) Description of commodities and Schedule B number. The correct commodity number as provided in Schedule B, Statistical Classification of Domestic and Foreign Commodities Exported from the United States, shall be entered in the space provided on the Shipper's Export Declaration form, and a description of the merchandise shall be supplied in the “Description of Commodities” column in sufficient detail to permit the verification of the Schedule B commodity number. The name of the commodity, in terms which can be identified or associated with the language used in Schedule B (usually the
commercial name of the commodity), and any and all characteristics of the commodity which distinguish it from commodities of the same name covered by other Schedule B classifications shall be clearly and fully stated. Careful reference to the Schedule B classification scheme for related commodities as well as for the commodity being shipped is necessary in order to establish which particular characteristics must be stated in the description to permit verification of the correct Schedule B commodity number and to eliminate any question that some other commodity number might apply. A description of commodities in the kind of detail specified above is a separate requirement, and the furnishing of the correct Schedule B commodity number does not relieve the exporter of furnishing, in addition, a complete and accurate commodity description in accordance with this requirement. If the shipment is moving under a validated license, the description shown on the export declaration shall conform with that shown on the validated export license. However, where the description on the license does not state all of the characteristics of the commodity which are needed to completely verify the commodity number, as described above, the missing characteristics, as well as the description shown on the license, shall be stated in the commodity description on the Shipper's Export Declaration.
(m) Export license number and expiration date (or general license symbol). For exports to foreign countries the export license number and expiration date, or the general license symbol shall be shown below the description of the commodity.
(n) Net quantity. Where a unit of quantity is specified in Schedule B for the commodity number in which the item is classified, net quantity is required to be reported in the specified unit, and the unit in which reported should be indicated on the declaration following the net quantity figure. Where the unit of quantity specified in Schedule B is "No." (number), “Each" or the abbreviation "Ea.” may be indicated on the declaration as the unit of quantity. If no unit of quantity is specified in Schedule B for a numbered
classification, but a validated export license for the item specifies a unit of quantity, the net quantity shall be reported on the declaration in terms of the unit of quantity specified in the validated license. If neither Schedule B
an applicable validated license specifies a unit of quantity for the item, net quantity is not required to be reported, and an “X” should be entered in the “net quantity” column on the Shipper's Export Declaration. Where Schedule B calls for two units of quantity, net quantity shall be reported in terms of both units. Where the specified unit is in terms of weight (ounces, pounds, etc.) the net quantity should reflect the net weight, exclusive of the weight of barrels, boxes, or other bulky coverings, and exclusive of salt or pickle in the case of salted or pickled fish or meats. Note, however, That for a few commodities where “content lb., "dry weight," or some similar weight unit is specified in Schedule B, the net quantity to be reported on the Shipper's Export Declaration may be less than the net weight. In the expression of net quantities, fractions of one-half unit or upward will be counted as a whole unit, and fractions of less than one-half unit will be ignored, except that where the total net quantity is less than one-half of the unit prescribed for the commodity in Schedule B "Less than onehalf (unit)" should be reported. (For example, where the unit for a given commodity is in terms of "M board feet," a net quantity of 8,400 board feet would be reported as "8 M bd. ft." and a net quantity of 900 board feet would be reported as “1 M bd. ft."; however, a total net quantity of 450 board feet should not be ignored but should be reported as “less than one-half M bd. ft.”.)
(0) Gross (shipping) weight. In addition to specifying the net quantity in the units required by Schedule B, the gross shipping weight in pounds, including the weight of containers, shall be shown for all shipments by vessel and air. However, for containerized cargo in lift vans, cargo vans, or similar substantial outer containers, the weight of such containers should not be included in the gross weight of the commodities. If gross shipping weight information is not available for individual Schedule B
items for the reason that commodities covered by more than one Schedule B number are contained in the same shipping container, approximate shipping weights, estimated as accurately as is practicable, may be shown on the Shipper's Export Declarations for each Schedule B item in the container. The total of the estimated weights must equal the actual shipping weight of the entire container or containers and contents. Gross shipping weight is not required for shipments by mail or for shipments by methods of transportation other than vessel or air.
(p) “D” (Domestic) or “F” (Foreign). (1) The export declaration covering exports to foreign countries shall show foreign goods separately from goods of domestic production. Exports of foreign merchandise include those commodities which
the growth, produce, or manufacture of foreign countries which entered the United States, including U.S. Foreign Trade Zones, as imports and which at the time of exportation have undergone no change in form or condition or enhancement in value by further manufacture in the United States, including U.S. Foreign Trade Zones, Puerto Rico, or U.S. Possessions.
(2) Exports of domestic merchandise include those commodities which are the growth, produce, or manufacture of the United States, including U.S. Foreign Trade Zones, Puerto Rico, or U.S. Possessions (including commodities incorporating foreign components), and those articles of foreign origin which have been enhanced value changed from the form in which imported by further manufacture or processing in the United States, including U.S. Foreign Trade Zones, Puerto Rico, or U.S. Possessions.
(3) The above distinction between domestic and foreign merchandise is intended only for use in reporting on the Shipper's Export Declaration and is intended for statistical purposes only.
(4) On the Shipper's Export Declaration in the column headed "Specify 'D' or "F’”, domestic merchandise shall be identified by the designation “D” and foreign merchandise shall be identified by the designation "F.” On the Shipper's Export Declaration for In-Transit Goods, Form 7513, one of the following
statements, whichever is appropriate, shall be shown across the body of the form within columns 1 through 6:
(i) For in-transit shipments of domestic (U.S.) merchandise, “The merchandise described herein is of the growth, production or manufacture of the United States;" and
(ii) For in-transit shipments of foreign merchandise, “The merchandise described herein is of foreign origin.”
(5) Foreign Military Sales (FMS) indicator. For any export that represents the delivery of goods or the repair of military equipment under provisions of the FMS program (including those financed under the Foreign Military Finance (FMF) Program), an “M” indicator code should be included in Item (16) on Commerce Form 7525-V and in Item (23) on Commerce Form 7525–VALT (Intermodal) of the paper SED, with an “FS” Export Information Code on the Commodity Line Item Description (CLI) field of the Automated Export System (AES) record layout, and a "3" indicator code in field 2 (Type) of the Automated Export Reporting Program (AERP) record layout. This indicator code should be used in lieu of the domestic (D) or foreign (F) indicator code required in those fields on the SED Form, the AES record, and the AERP record. The FMS indicator code will serve to identify more accurately that segment of U.S. exports that represent FMS deliveries in the U.S. export statistics.
(q) Value. (1) In general, the value to be reported on the Shipper's Export Declaration shall be the value at U.S. port of export (selling price or cost if not sold, including inland freight, insurance, and other charges to U.S. port of export) (nearest whole dollar; omit cents figures). Port of Export (Selling price or cost if not sold, including inland freight, insurance and other charges to U.S. port of export) (Nearest whole dollar; omit cents figures).” “Selling price” for goods exported pursuant to sale is the exporter's price to his customer net of any unconditional discounts from list price, but without deducting any discounts which are conditional upon a particular act or performance on the part of the customer. Commissions to be paid by a U.S. exporter to his agent abroad, or to be de
ducted from the selling price by the exporter's agent abroad should be excluded. For goods shipped on consignment without a sale actually having been made at the time of export, the "selling price” to be reported on the Shipper's Export Declaration is the market value at the time of export at the United States port from which exported.
(2) The value reported on the Shippers’ Export Declaration shall exclude: The cost of loading on the exporting vessel, aircraft, car or vehicle at the port of exportation, freight, insurance, and any other charges or transportation costs beyond the port of export; and any duties, taxes, or other assessments imposed by foreign countries. The value reported shall include inland or domestic freight or other charges to the seaport, airport, or border port of exportation.
(3) The value to be reported as defined above is (or is equivalent to) an f.a.s. (Free alongside ship) value. Therefore, where goods are sold f.o.b. a U.S. point other than the port of exportation, freight, insurance, and other costs to the border, sea, or airport of exportation shall be added to the selling price (as defined above) for purposes of reporting value on the Shipper's Export Declaration. If the actual amount of such domestic costs is not available, an estimate of the domestic costs shall be added. Where goods are sold at a "delivered" price, c.i.f. foreign destination, the cost of loading on the exporting carrier at the port of exportation, if any, and freight, insurance, and other costs beyond the port of exportation should be subtracted from the price for purposes of reporting value on the Shipper's Export Declaration. If the actual amount of such costs is not available, an estimate of the costs should be subtracted. Costs added to or subtracted from the selling price in accordance with the above instructions should not be itemized or shown separately on the Shipper's Export Declaration, but the value reported should be the value after the making of such adjustments, where they are required to arrive at "value at U.S. port of export.” In the expression of values in export declarations, fractions of a
