The articles manufactured, exported, or imported shall be listed on the application for registration under the same categories and in precisely the same terms in which they are listed in § 149. Applications for registration must be signed and sworn to in the presence § a notary public before they are transmitted to the Secretary of
*$$ 1.1 to 1.34, inclusive, issued under the authority contained in sec. 5 (a), 50 Stat. 124; 22 U.S.C., Sup., 245b. #In §§ 1.1 to 1.33, inclusive, the numbers to the right of the decimal point correspond with the respective paragraph numbers in part III, Regulations governing international traffic in arms, Secretary of State, Apr. 1, 1938, 3 F.R. 692–695. ABBREVIATIONS: The following abbreviations are used in this chapter: Proc. Proclamation of the President of the United States. E.O. Executive Order. 1.2 Registration fee. Applications for registration transmitted to the Secretary of State must be accompanied by a registration fee in the form of money orders or a certified check. This fee is in the amount of $100 for persons who have not manufactured, exported, or imported arms, ammunition, or implements of war, as enumerated in § 1.49, to a total sales value of more than $50,000 during the 12 months immediately preceding their application for registration, and in the amount of $500 for persons who have manufactured, exported, or imported arms, ammunition, or implements of war, as enumerated, to a total sales value of more than $50,000 during the 12 months immediately preceding their application. Persons paying a fee of $100 shall submit with their application for registration an affidavit, signed and sworn to before a notary public by a responsible officer of the company, stating that the company did not manufacture, export, or import arms, ammunition, or implements of war, as enumerated in § 1.49, to a total sales value of more than $50,000 during the 12 months immediately preceding the application for registration and setting forth such evidence in substantiation of this affirmation as may seem appropriate.*f
*#For statutory and source citations, see note to $ 1.1.
1.3 Certificate of registration. Upon receipt of an application for registration and the appended certificate of registration, duly filled out and accompanied by a registration fee of $100 or $500, as the case may be, and by a satisfactory affidavit as described above in the case of persons paying a fee of $100, the Secretary of State will return to the applicant, as a receipt, the certificate of registration, duly signed and sealed. This certificate of registration must be conspicuously displayed at the principal place of business of the person registered."f
1.4 Manufacturers, exporters, and importers of aircraft wheels and propeller blades. Manufacturers, exporters, and importers of component parts of the articles or units enumerated in § 149, but not of a complete article or unit listed in that section, are not required to register under the joint resolution. Aircraft wheels and aircraft propeller blades are, however, considered as constituting to such an unusual degree the main body of aircraft under-carriage units and aircraft propellers that the manufacture, export, or import of such wheels or blades alone is held to subject the manufacturer, exporter, or importer to the requirement of registration.*t
1.5 Notification of changes. Every person registered shall notify the Secretary of State of any change in the list of arms, ammunition, and implements of war which he manufactures, exports, or imports, and, upon such notification, the Secretary of State will issue to such person an amended certificate of registration free of charge, which will remain valid until the date of expiration of the original certificate issued to him.*t
1.6 Production for experimental or scientific purposes. The production for experimental or scientific purposes, when such production is not followed by sale, of the appliances and substances included in § 149 (f), or of single units of other arms, ammunition, and implements of war, is not considered as manufacture for the purposes of section 5 of the joint resolution (50 Stat. 124; 22 U.S.C., Sup., 245b).”f
1.7 Persons who may make or receive occasional shipments. Persons who are not engaged in the business of exporting or importing arms, ammunition, or implements of war, but who, either for their own personal use or as forwarding agents for persons who are engaged in this business, or, in exceptional circumstances, in other capacities, may make or receive occasional shipments of such articles, will not be considered as exporters or importers of arms, ammunition, and implements of war within the meaning of Section 5 of the joint resolution.*t
1.8 National Firearms Act. The provisions of the regulations in §§ 1.1–1.51 shall be considered as binding in addition to, and not in lieu of, those established under the Act known as the National Firearms Act (48 Stat. 1236; 26 U.S.C. 1132–11324), approved by the *t For statutory and source citations, see note to $ 1.1.
