Sec. 715c. Suspension of operation of section 715b of this title

-STATUTE-

Whenever the President finds that the amount of petroleum and

to storage) resulting in an undue burden on or restriction of

interstate commerce in petroleum and petroleum products, he shall

by proclamation declare such finding, and thereupon the provisions

of section 715b of this title shall be inoperative until such time

as the President shall find and by proclamation declare that the

conditions which gave rise to the suspension of the operation of

the provisions of such section no longer exist. If any provision

of this section or the application thereof shall be held to be

invalid, the validity of application of section 715b of this title

(a) Rules and regulations

The President shall prescribe such regulations as he finds

necessary or appropriate for the enforcement of the provisions of

this chapter, including but not limited to regulations requiring

reports, maps, affidavits, and other documents relating to the

production, storage, refining, processing, transporting, or

handling of petroleum and petroleum products, and providing for the

keeping of books and records, and for the inspection of such books

and records and of properties and facilities.

(b) Certificate of clearance for petroleum and petroleum products

Whenever the President finds it necessary or appropriate for the

enforcement of the provisions of this chapter he shall require

certificates of clearance for petroleum and petroleum products

moving or to be moved in interstate commerce from any particular

area, and shall establish a board or boards for the issuance of

such certificates. A certificate of clearance shall be issued by a

board so established in any case where such board determines that

the petroleum or petroleum products in question does not constitute

contraband oil. Denial of any such certificate shall be by order

of the board, and only after reasonable opportunity for hearing.

Whenever a certificate of clearance is required for any area in any

State, it shall be unlawful to ship or transport petroleum or

petroleum products in interstate commerce from such area unless a

certificate has been obtained therefor.

(c) Review of order of denial of certificate of clearance

Any person whose application for a certificate of clearance is

denied may obtain a review of the order denying such application in

the United States District Court for the district wherein the board

is sitting by filing in such court within thirty days after the

entry of such order a written petition praying that the order of

the board be modified or set aside, in whole or in part. A copy of

such petition shall be forthwith served upon the board, and

thereupon the board shall certify and file in the court a

transcript of the record upon which the order complained of was

entered. Upon the filing of such transcript, such court shall have

jurisdiction to affirm, modify, or set aside such order, in whole

or in part. No objection to the order of the board shall be

considered by the court unless such objection shall have been urged

before the board. The finding of the board as to the facts, if

supported by evidence, shall be conclusive. The judgment and

decree of the court shall be final, subject to review as provided

in sections 1254, 1291, and 1292 of title 28.

(a) Seizure procedure; return of contraband oil

Contraband oil shipped or transported in interstate commerce in

violation of the provisions of this chapter shall be liable to be

proceeded against in any district court of the United States within

the jurisdiction of which the same may be found, and seized for

forfeiture to the United States by a process of libel for

condemnation; but in any such case the court may in its discretion,

and under such terms and conditions as it shall prescribe, order

the return of such contraband oil to the owner thereof where undue

hardship would result from such forfeiture. The proceedings in

such cases shall conform as nearly as may be to proceedings in rem

in admiralty, except that either party may demand a trial by jury

of any issue of fact joined in any such case, and all such

proceedings shall be at the suit of and in the name of the United

States. Contraband oil forfeited to the United States as provided

in this section shall be used or disposed of pursuant to such rules

and regulations as the President shall prescribe.

(b) Certificates of clearance

No such forfeiture shall be made in the case of contraband oil

owned by any person (other than a person shipping such contraband

oil in violation of the provisions of this chapter) who has with

respect to such contraband oil a certificate of clearance which on

its face appears to be valid and to have been issued by a board

created under authority of section 715d of this title, certifying

that the shipment in question is not contraband oil, and such

person had no reasonable ground for believing such certificate to

be invalid or to have been issued as a result of fraud or

misrepresentation of fact.
