The name of the or the abbreviation "Ea.” may be indicommodity, in terms which can be cated on the declaration as the unit of identified or associated with the lan- quantity. If no unit of quantity is specguage used in Schedule B (usually the ified 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 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. for
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
