830.9 Requirements for separation
and alignment of items on Shipper's Export Declarations.

Where two or more items are classified under the same Schedule B number and moving under the same general license, or where no license is required, the
830.10 Continuation sheets for Ship
per's Export Declaration. When more horizontal lines than the number provided on the Shipper's Export Declaration form are required to list all of the merchandise covered by the declaration, Continuation Sheets should be utilized. 6 In lieu of official Continuation Sheets, additional copies of the Shipper's Export Declaration form with no portion torn off or removed, may be used as continuation sheets. All continuation sheets shall be numbered in proper sequence and securely stapled to the first sheet, which must be the export declaration itself. Each continuation sheet shall show the Customs port of exportation and the country of ultimate destination for the shipment. The following statement with the blank filled in as appropriate shall be inserted on the last line of the description column of the Shipper's Export Declaration itself:

ment for the filing of manifests and Shipper's Export Declarations by
carriers. (a) Carriers transporting merchandise from the United States, Puerto Rico, or U.S. Possessions to foreign countries; from the United States or Puerto Rico to the Virgin Islands of the United States; or between Puerto Rico and the United States; shall not be granted clearance, where clearance is required, and shall not depart, where clearance is not required, until manifests (for vessels, aircraft, and rail carriers) and Shipper's Export Declarations have been filed with the Customs Director as specified in paragraphs (b) through (d) of this section, except as provided in $30.24.

For each item of cargo, the manifest shall show a description of the articles, contents, quantities, and values; however, a notation on the Cargo Declaration that values are as stated on the Shipper's Export Declarations, copies of which are attached to such manifest, will be accepted. There shall also be shown for each item of cargo the bill of lading number on the Shipper's Export Declaration covering the item, except that bill of lading numbers are not required on manifests covering cargo destined for Canada or a nonforeign area. If an item on a Cargo Declaration is one for which a Shipper's Export Declaration is not required, a notation shall be inserted on the Cargo Declaration as to the basis for the exemption with a reference to the number of the section in the regulations where the particular exemption is provided. The bills of lading, cargo lists, or other commercial forms must be securely attached to the Cargo Declaration in such manner as to constitute one document; that they are incorporated by suitable reference on the face of the form such as “Cargo as per bills of lading attached,” or “Cargo as per commercial forms attached,” and that there is shown on the face of each bill the information required by the Cargo Declaration for the cargo covered by that document. The manifest of vessels (including vessels taking bunker fuel to be laden aboard vessels on the high seas) clearing for foreign countries shall also show the quantities and values of bunker fuel taken aboard at that port for fueling use of the vessel, apart from such quantities as may have been laden on vessels as cargo.

In addition, for any item for which a Shipper's Export Declaration is not required under the regulations in this part, a notation as to the basis for the exemption with a reference to the number of the section in this part where the particular exemption is provided, shall be inserted on the manifest, or on the waybill filed in lieu of listing on the manifest. In the case of shipments on an air waybill, a copy of each document may be attached to the cargo manifest, the numbers of such air way. bills listed in the body of the manifest, and the statement “Cargo as per Air Waybills Attached" noted on the manifest. On direct departures only, for shipments requiring a Shipper's Export Declaration a copy of each declaration may be attached to the cargo manifest. In such case the air waybill numbers of such declarations shall be listed on the cargo manifest in the column for air waybill numbers, and the statement “Cargo as per SEDs Attached” noted on the manifest. Under this alternative procedure, any shipments not requiring a Shipper's Export Declaration shall be listed on the manifest, and a notation as to the basis for the exemption with a reference to the number of the section in this part where the particular exemption is provided, shall be shown. For aircraft transporting merchandise between the United States and Puerto Rico, the manifest shall consist of full detail for cargo requiring Shipper's Export Declarations and summary information for cargo exempt for Shipper's Export Declaration requirements.
