Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations
PART 1313 — IMPORTATION AND EXPORTATION OF LIST I AND LIST II CHEMICALS
EXPORTATION OF LISTED CHEMICALS
§1313.21 Notification prior to export.
(a) Each regulated person who seeks to export a listed chemical that meets or exceeds the threshold quantities identified in §1310.04(f) of this chapter, or is a listed chemical for which no threshold has been established as identified in §1310.04(g) of this chapter, must notify the Administration of the intended export by filing an export declaration (DEA Form 486) not later than 15 calendar days before the date of release by a customs officer at the port of export. Regulated persons who seek to export a listed chemical below the threshold quantities identified in §1310.04(f) are not required to file an export declaration in advance of the export.
(b) A complete and accurate declaration (DEA Form 486) must be filed with the Administration through the DEA Diversion Control Division secure network application not later than 15 calendar days prior to the date of release by a customs officer at the port of export. The declaration must be signed and dated by the exporter and must contain the address from which the listed chemicals will be shipped for exportation. Upon receipt and review, the Administration will assign a transaction identification number to each completed declaration. The 15 calendar days shall begin on the date that the regulated person files a completed declaration without regard to the date that the Administration assigns a transaction identification number. Exporters may not request release of a listed chemical until a transaction identification number has been issued.
(c) The 15 calendar day advance notification requirement for listed chemical exports may be waived, in whole or in part, for:
(1) Any regulated person who has satisfied the requirements of §1313.24 for reporting to the Administration an established business relationship, as defined in §1300.02 of this chapter, with a foreign customer.
(2) A specific listed chemical to a specified country, as set forth in paragraph (f) of this section, for which the Administrator determines that advance notification is not necessary for effective chemical diversion control.
(d) For exports meeting the requirements of paragraph (c)(1) of this section, the declaration (DEA Form 486) must be filed with the Administration through the DEA Diversion Control Division secure network application at least three business days before the date of release by a customs officer. The declaration must be signed and dated by the exporter and must contain the address from which the listed chemicals will be shipped for exportation. Upon receipt and review, the Administration will assign a transaction identification number to each completed declaration. The exporter may only proceed with the export transaction once the transaction identification number has been issued.
(e) For exportations where advance notification is waived pursuant to paragraph (c)(2) of this section no DEA Form 486 is required; however, the regulated person must submit quarterly reports with the Regulatory Section, Diversion Control Division, Drug Enforcement Administration, not later than the 15th day of the month following the end of each quarter. See the Table of DEA Mailing Addresses in §1321.01 of this chapter for the current mailing address. Such report shall contain the following information regarding each individual exportation:
(1) The name of the listed chemical;
(2) The quantity and date exported;
(3) The name and full business address of the foreign customer;
(4) The port of embarkation; and
(5) The foreign port of entry.
(f) The 15 day advance notification requirement set forth in paragraph (a) of this section has been waived for exports of the following listed chemicals to the following countries:
|Name of Chemical||Country|
(g) No person shall export or cause to be exported any listed chemical, knowing or having reasonable cause to believe the export is in violation of the laws of the country to which the chemical is exported or the chemical will be used to manufacture a controlled substance in violation of the Act or the laws of the country to which the chemical is exported. The Administration will publish a notice of foreign import restrictions for listed chemicals of which DEA has knowledge as provided in §1313.25.
(h) Export declarations shall become void and of no effect 180 calendar days after the date the declaration is deemed filed with the Administration.
