356 FORMALITIES WHEN IMPORTING GOODS. P. ix., Сн. v.

on which the goods are liberated from quarantine and delivered to>
the customs officials.

In the case of customs barriers the documents in question must
be presented immediately on arrival of the goods.

If the vessel is compelled by force majeure to enter a port which,
is not her destination, the time limit for the presentation of the requisite
documents is :—

(a) Seven days, if the vessel is to be unloaded and the goods
forwarded to their destination by other means.

(b) One month if the consignee is able and willing to pay the import
duties at the intermediate port.

The day on which the documents are presented to the customs
office is not included.

In appealing against fines and overcharges imposed by the Russian
Customs authorities on account of errors in bills of lading, invoices,
and customs declarations, the consignees must apply with a protest
at the local customs house. If unsuccessful, they have the right
to petition direct to the Customs Department at Petrograd, during
the next two months. Apart from this, foreign merchants or shippers
are also at liberty to present a similar petition in English or Russian,,
within the same two months to the same Customs Department.
Should this petition be rejected, a further two months period is allowed
from the date of rejection within which to address a petition to the
Russian Ministry of Finance. If all these steps fail, petitioners may
make a final appeal within another period of two months, to the
governing senate at Petrograd. Every application must be
accompanied by one rouble revenue stamp for each double sheet of foolscap
paper upon which the petition is written, and another one rouble
revenue stamp for the reply.

Goods on which duty has been paid, whether still under customs*
control, or leased therefrom, may be re-exported with a refund of
the duty which has been paid, provided that the application is made
within three months from the date when the duty was paid, or from
the date of release from customs’ control, to the Department of
Customs Taxation when the duty does not exceed 300 roubles, or,
to the Ministry of Finance if the duty exceeds 300 roubles. For
finished articles manufactured in Russia from imported raw material,
a system of drawbacks on customs duty paid, is in force. In April
1914, the list of goods enjoying this privilege was considerably
increased.
