A validated export license is a document issued by the Office of Export Administration, authorizing a specific export pursuant to an application by the exporter. Further information can be obtained from the sources referenced in 531.1.
A Shipper’s Export Declaration, Commerce Form 7525–V (see 520) is required for every shipment covered by a validated export license, except technical data.
When shipping under a validated export license, the sender must enter the complete validated license number on the address side of the wrapper and also on a duly executed Shipper’s Export Declaration (see 533.2) covering the commodity to be mailed.
The validated license document will be retained by the sender, who will record all shipments of commodities or related technical data on the reverse side.
For items containing commodities other than technical data that show a validated license number, verify that the description of the contents appearing on the customs declaration (see 123) conforms to the description on the Shipper’s Export Declaration.
If no discrepancy is noted and the contents of the item are mailable and are not prohibited by the country of destination, accept the item, postmark the export declaration (if required), and dispatch in accordance with 525.
