§ 30.37 Exceptions from the requirement for reporting complete commodity detail on the Shipper's Export Declaration.
(a) Where it can be determined that particular types of U.S. Government shipments, or shipments for Government projects, are of such nature that they should not be included in the export statistics, and further, where no detriment to the export control program would be involved, special arrangements can sometimes be made to waive compliance with specific portions of the requirements of 30.7 with respect to the reporting of detailed information on the Shipper's. Export Declaration. Such exceptions will be made only upon application by the exporter and specific authorization to the Customs Director and the exporter for the particular project or shipment, approved by both the Bureau of the Census and the Office of Export Administration, and will be conditioned upon a prescribed identification, which must appear upon the declarations. The particular types of shipments for which such exceptions may be possible are as follows:
(1) Shipments to a contractor under a Department of Defense or other armed service contract for the construction of facilities for the use of the U.S. armed services.
(2) Temporary exports by or to U.S. Government agencies.
(3) Shipments of supplies and material to contractors in the Panama Canal Zone for the construction and/or maintenance of the Panama Canal Zone and its facilities.
(b) Special exemptions to specific portions of the requirements of 30.7 with respect to the reporting of detailed information on the Shipper's Export Declaration may also be granted by the Bureau of the Census with the concurrence of the Office of Export Administration for certain Department of Defense shipments, or shipments made on behalf of the Department of Defense, to foreign governments under the cash reimbursable provisions of the Mutual Defense Assistance Program (military sales), if and when arrangements have been made for the Bureau of the Census to obtain the desired statistical information other than through the reporting of complete commodity detail on the Shipper's Export Declaration.
