50 U.S. Code § 4608 - Procedures for hardship relief from export controls
Any person who, in such person’s domestic manufacturing process or other domestic business operation, utilizes a product produced abroad in whole or in part from a good historically obtained from the United States but which has been made subject to export controls, or any person who historically has exported such a good, may transmit a petition of hardship to the Secretary requesting an exemption from such controls in order to alleviate any unique hardship resulting from the imposition of such controls. A petition under this section shall be in such form as the Secretary shall prescribe and shall contain information demonstrating the need for the relief requested.
Not later than 30 days after receipt of any petition under subsection (a), the Secretary shall transmit a written decision to the petitioner granting or denying the requested relief. Such decision shall contain a statement setting forth the Secretary’s basis for the grant or denial. Any exemption granted may be subject to such conditions as the Secretary considers appropriate.
For termination of authority granted by this chapter, see section 4622 of this title.
