New Requirements (Updated June 26, 2009)
As of the first of this year (2009), it has become necessary for Krieger Barrels to increase the cost of applying for a license. This has become necessary due to new costs by the United States Department of State. We are now being charged a substantially increased license application fee and an additional amount on each license for which we apply. This also means that if a license is rejected, we will still have to pay the cost.
The new application fee is $400.00 (USD). There will be the usual handling fee per barrel, and the shipping costs will be directly passed onto the customer unless the customer specifies that he/she wishes to pay the shipping directly (collect). We normally ship via CEVA LOGISTICS or the United States Postal Service.
If you are thinking that you wish to pay the cost of shipping directly, we must know the name of the freight company before the license application is made as this information is required on the State Department form, and only freight companies listed on the license are authorized to be the carrier. (Please note that several common freight carriers in the United States do not ship gun-related parts out of the States.)
NEW U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT RESTRICTIONS
IMPORTANT: The U.S. State Department will no longer issue any export license for commercial “end users” in either 7.62mm or 5.56mm NATO chambers. These NATO chambers are strictly for government, military, or police “end users.” (Of course, the ban continues on 50 caliber barrels.)
We will need a license from our State Department in order to ship your barrels out of the United States. Therefore, paperwork will be required from you before we can apply for the permit. Upon receiving your paperwork, we can begin the licensing procedure as we are manufacturing your barrels, and there should not be a delay in shipping your barrels to you.
To our Overseas Customers
Paperwork needed to process Orders shipped outside of the United States
- Import Authorization from your country. An original document or certified copy issued by your country authorizing the import of specified barrels; must include quantity. If your country does not require an import authorization, we will need an original letter stating your country does not require an import certificate/authorization; and it must be stamped with an official government stamp.
- Purchase Order. Needs to be on your letterhead with barrels and quantity specified; it must exactly match the Import Authorization in type, quantity, and value. Please include a Statement-of-Use on the Purchase Order. For example: I declare that these barrels are to be used for commercial resale in (name your country) for sporting purposes. Or (as applies in your case) I declare these barrels are to be used for my personal use for sporting purposes and will remain in my private collection in (name your country).
- DSP-83. This U.S. State Department form can be gotten from us via e-mail below. Sections 2 through five must be completed along with Section 7. See Instructions for the DSP-83 also included with additional comments on a separate page.
It is very important you understand that the above three pieces of paperwork must agree in items being ordered.
Please note that after we receive your paperwork, we must apply to our State Department for a permanent export license in your name. Once we have this U.S. State Department license, we can continue to ship barrels on it until the license expires (up to four years), your Import Authorization expires, or the quantity listed on your authorization has been exhausted – i.e. whichever occurs first. We will continue to charge a handling fee for all overseas orders. Our customers who order large quantities of barrels from us will not see much difference in this fee, but for those of you who order only an occasional barrel or two, you might consider ordering from someone in your country who is ordering the larger quantities, as your handling fee for a single barrel or two will be substantial. Please remember when applying for your Import Authorization etc. that you consider your needs for the length of time that the Authorization will cover. It is to your advantage to be very complete when you place your purchase order and get your Import Authorization.
