521.1 Commerce Form 7525–V, Shipper’s Export Declaration
U.S. Department of Commerce regulations require shippers mailing merchandise to foreign countries for commercial purposes to file a Shipper’s Export Declaration (SED) on Commerce Form 7525–V with the Post Office facility at the time of mailing. Under these regulations, shippers who wish to correct a previously filed export declaration must promptly submit a photocopy, carbon, or other legible copy of the originally filed Shipper’s Export Declaration on which the incorrect data are neatly lined out and the correct data are entered, to the postmaster at the Post Office facility where the shipment was mailed. Corrected copies should show the words Correction Copy conspicuously in the upper right of the form.
The Commerce Department authorizes some companies to submit magnetic tapes to the Census Bureau in lieu of filing Shipper’s Export Declaration. Packages presented for mailing by authorized companies will bear an endorsement such as “NO SED REQUIRED, SECT 30.39 FTSR, S.A.S.–S.M.” Packages bearing this or a similar endorsement may be accepted for mailing without Commerce Form 7525–V.
