Title 19: Customs Duties
Subpart G—Exportation and Destruction

§191.73   Export summary procedure.

(a) General. The export summary procedure consists of a Chronological Summary of Exports used to support a drawback claim. It may be submitted as part of the claim in lieu of actual documentary evidence of exportation. It may be used by any claimant for manufacturing drawback, and for unused or rejected merchandise drawback, as well as for drawback involving the substitution of finished petroleum derivatives (19 U.S.C. 1313(a), (b), (c), (j), or (p)). It is intended to improve administrative efficiency.

(b) Format of Chronological Summary of Exports. The Chronological Summary of Exports shall contain the data provided for in the following sample:

Chronological Summary of Exports

Drawback entry No. ________.

Claimant ________; Exporter ________ (if different from claimant)

Period from ________ to ________.

Date of exportExporter if not claimantUnique export identifier1DescriptionNet quantitySched. B com. # or HTSUS #Destination

1This number is to be used to associate the export transaction presented on the Chronological Summary of Exports to the appropriate documentary evidence of exportation (for example, Bill of Lading, Manifest no., invoice, identification of vessel or aircraft and voyage or aircraft number (see subpart K), etc.).

(c) Documentary evidence—(1) Records. The claimant, whether or not the exporter, shall maintain the Chronological Summary of Exports and such additional evidence of exportation required by Customs to establish fully the identity of the exported articles and the fact of exportation. Actual evidence of exportation, as described in §191.72(a) of this subpart, is the primary evidence of export for drawback purposes.

(2) Maintenance of records. The claimant shall submit as part of the claim the Chronological Summary of Exports (see §191.51). The claimant shall retain records supporting the Chronological Summary of Exports for 3 years after payment of the related claim, and such records are subject to review by Customs.
