ance with the applicable procedures out

lined in § 30.14 (a) or (b) prior to exportation. For exports by pipeline, Shipper's Export Declarations may be presented after exportation, at the end of each month, in accordance with procedures outlined in § 30.14(c). For purposes of these regulations, the port of exportation is defined as the Customs port at which or nearest to which the land surface carrier transporting the merchandise crosses the border of the United States into foreign territory, or, in the case of exportation by vessel or air, the Customs port where the merchandise is loaded on the vessel cr aircraft which is to carry the merchandise to a foreign country or to a nonforeign area of ultimate destination. Except as ctherwise specifically provided,' declarations should not be filed at the place where the shipment originates if it is to be transshipped within the United States area before being dispatched to a foreign country or its final destination in a nonforeign area. This applies to shipments originating in Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands of the United States being forwarded to the United States for transshipment to another destination, and to shipments originating in the United States and being forwarded to Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands of the United States for transshipment, as well as to merchandise being transshipped in Customs Districts within the States of the United States. In such cases, the declarations should be filed only with the Customs Director at the actual port of exportation. It is permissible for exporters to arrange for presentation of the declaration by the carrier, as authorized above in this section, and for this purpose the declarations may be delivered by the exporter to the carrier at the original port of lading. (34 F.R. 6183, Apr. 5, 1969, as amended at 36 F.R. 5411, Mar. 23, 1971; 36 F.R. 5839, Mar. 30, 1971] $ 30.13 Who can present Shipper's Ex

port Declarations. The Shipper's Export Declaration shall be presented to the Customs Director (or to the Postmaster in the case of mail shipments) by the exporter or his agent. Declarations duly executed and signed by the exporter or his agent may be presented by a carrier transporting the merchandise but not otherwise

acting as forwarding agent, without specific authorization therefor. $ 30.14 Procedure upon presentation of

Shipper's Export Declarations. (a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, upon presentation of the required copies to the Customs Director an authenticated copy of the Shipper's Export Declaration will be returned to the exporter or his agent by Customs. Where presentation is made by the exporter or by an agent of the exporter other than the exporting carrier, the authenticated copy so returned shall be delivered to the exporting carrier prior to exportation, to be delivered to the Customs Director by the carrier as a condition for clearance or departure, as provided in $ 30.22. Where the exporting carrier acts as agent of the exporter to present the declarations to Customs, all required copies will be submitted, and the authenticated copy returned by Customs will be delivered again to Customs by the carrier as provided in § 30.22.

(b) For shipments where the ultimate destination is Canada or a nonforeign area, the requirement for advance presentation of the export declaration and subsequent delivery of an authenticated copy by the carrier may be waived in those cases where the exporting carrier acts as agent of the exporter to present the declarations to Customs, unless prior presentation with opportunity to review documents or inspect the merchandise prior to authentication is deemed necessary in order to accomplish the objectives of the regulations in this part and the Customs Director so notifies the carrier. Where the requirements for advance presentation and for delivery of an authenticated copy by the carrier are waived, presentation prior to clearance or departure of the carrier of the required number of copies of the Shipper's Export Declaration by the exporting carrier, acting as agent of the exporter, will satisfy the requirement of this section for presentation by the exporter as well as the requirement of $ 30.22 for presentation by the carrier.

(c) For shipments by pipeline, the Shipper's Export Declaration is not required to be presented prior to exportation, and exportation will be permitted upon the understanding that the exporter or his agent, within four working days after the end of each calendar month, will file with the Customs Director hay

ing jurisdiction for the pipeline, a Shipper's Export Declaration in the number of copies specified in § 30.5 to cover exports to each consignee during the calendar month. If the declaration is presented to the Customs Director by the exporter or an agent of the exporter other than the operator of the pipeline, one copy, authenticated by the Customs Director to show it has been so presented, will be delivered by the exporter or his agent to the pipeline operator for presentation by him to the Customs Director in satisfaction of the requirements of § 30.23. However, if the operator of the pipeline acts as agent of the exporter to present to the Customs Director all required copies of the Shipper's Export Declaration prepared by the exporter or his agent, the initial presentation by the pipeline operator will satisfy both the requirements of this section for presentation by the exporter and the requirements of § 30.23 for presentation by the operator of the pipeline. $ 30.15 Procedure for presentation of

declarations covering shipments from

an interior point. For shipments from an interior point, the Shipper's Export Declaration in the number of copies required in $ 30.5 shall be prepared and delivered by the exporter or his agent to the carrier to accompany the merchandise for presentation by the carrier to the Customs Director at the seaport, airport, or border port of exportation, or it may be mailed (or otherwise forwarded) to, or prepared by, an agent of the exporter for presentation to the Customs Director at the port of exportation. (See $ 30.6 for requirements for a separate set of Shipper's Export Declarations for each car, truck, or other vehicle, covering only the merchandise exported in that car, truck, or vehicle.) $ 30.16 Corrections to Shipper's Export

Declarations. Except for shipments by mail, the shipper or his agent shall prepare and file in duplicate with the Customs Director at the port of exportation a Shipper's Export Declaration Correction Form on Form FT-7403 for all corrections, amendments, or cancellations of Shipper's Export Declarations which are reported after the copies of the declarations have been forwarded by Customs to the Bureau of the Census, or for which the filing of Form FT-7403 is required by

the export control regulations. Other corrections, amendments, or cancellations shall be effected by means of a Correction Form, or shall be noted directly upon the Shipper's Export Declaration. For effecting corrections to Shipper's Export Declarations covering shipments by mail, one copy of the Shipper's Export Declaration Correction Form should be prepared and presented to the Postmaster at the post office where the package was mailed. Correction Forms may be obtained free of charge from the Customs Director. The provisions of this paragraph relating to the filing of a Shipper's Export Declaration Correction Form shall not be construed as a relaxation of the requirements of the laws and regulations pertaining to the preparation and filing of Shipper's Export Declarations.

Carriers transporting merchandise from the United States, Puerto Rico, or U.S. Possessions to foreign countries, from the United States or Puerto Rico to American Samoa or 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 speci. fied below, except as provided in § 30.24. Where for reasons beyond the control of the exporting carrier, a given declaration (or declarations) has not been received prior to exportation or departure, and the merchandise has been laden, such carrier shall not as a result of this circumstance be required to offload the merchandise, or to delay its clearance (where clearance is required) or departure (if clearance is not required). However, the provisions of § 30.24 remain applicable. 135 F.R. 4948, Mar. 21, 1970, as amended at 36 F.R. 5412, Mar. 23, 1971) § 30.21 Requirements for the filing of
