32 CFR 165.7 - Waivers (including reductions).
prev | next
(a) The “Arms Export Control Act,” Public Law No. 90-629, as amended, requires the recoupment of a proportionate amount of nonrecurring cost of major defense equipment from foreign military sales customers but authorizes consideration of reductions or waivers for particular sales which, if made, significantly advance U.S. Government interests and the furtherance of mutual defense treaties between the United States and certain countries.
(b) Requests for waivers should originate with the foreign government and shall provide information on the extent of standardization to be derived as a result of the waiver.
(c) Blanket waiver requests should not be submitted and shall not be considered. The term “blanket waiver” refers to a nonrecurring cost recoupment charge waiver that is not related to a particular sale; for example, waivers for all sales to a country or all sales of a weapon system.
(d) A waiver request shall not be considered for a sale that was accepted without a nonrecurring cost recoupment charge waiver, unless the acceptance was conditional on consideration of the waiver request.
(e) Requests for waivers shall be processed expeditiously, and a decision normally made to either approve or disapprove the request within 60 days after receipt. A waiver in whole or in part of the recoupment charge or a denial of the request shall be provided in writing to the appropriate DoD Component.
