The deposits by each packer shall be so charged in the same ratio to the total deposits made under this paragraph and under $ 155.42 (b) for the inspection of canned oysters as the number of months of inspection service (including number of months, if any, for inspecting canned oysters) rendered in such packer's establishment bears to the total number of months of inspection service for canned shrimp and canned oysters rendered in all establishments. The balance remaining after such charges have been made shall be returned by the Administration to the packers after the completion of the fiscal year. When inspection service is withdrawn from an establishment as authorized by $ 155.13 (a), the Administration shall not return to the packer any of the advance deposits made for such establishments; such deposits shall be applied toward the total cost of the entire inspection service in the same manner as the deposits of all other packers subscribing to the service, as prescribed in this paragraph, and the balance which would have accrued to such packer shall be transferred into the Treasury as a miscellaneous receipt. [Paragraph (b) amended May 20, 1947, effective May 23, 1947, 12 F.R. 3318, and Oct. 27, 1947, effective Sept. 30, 1947, 12 F.R. 7108]

R. 4945, as amended). For the purpose of this section a case of canned oysters shall be 48 No. 1 cans (211 x 400) or the equivalent thereof. Advance deposits of not less than $300 shall be made whenever necessary to prevent arrears in the payment of fees, unless the Administration on an estimate of output authorizes payment in other amounts. Any excess advance deposits so made for the fiscal years shall be returned to the packer by the Administration after the inspection service is closed in the establishment.

(b) In addition to the fee prescribed by paragraph (a) of this section, as amended, an initial advance deposit of $600 (which includes a minimum case fee of $200 for inspection service for the first 1,000 cases of canned oysters packed under $$ 155.30 to 155.43) shall accompany each application for an initial inspection period; thereafter, three advance monthly deposits of $600 each shall be made on or before the first day of each following consecutive month: Provided, That a packer who is concurrently receiving inspection service under the regulations for the inspection of canned shrimp (21 CFR, 155.0–155.13) shall not pay any advance deposits under this paragraph. Each application for an extension period shall be accompanied by a deposit of $500, and at subsequent monthly intervals thereafter additional deposits of $500 shall be made; but if the final deposit is to cover a time of less than 30 days, then such deposit shall be at the rate of $16.67 for each day of such time. Advance deposits made under this paragraph shall be charged with the cost of the inspection service which has not been provided for by fees under paragraph (a) of this section and the $200

The balance remaining after such charges have been made shall be returned by the Administration to the packers after the completion of the fiscal year. When inspection service is withdrawn from an establishment as authorized by $ 155.43 (a), the Administration shall not return to the packer any of the advance deposits made for such establishments; such deposits shall be applied toward the total cost of the entire inspection service in the same manner as the deposits of all other packers subscribing to the service, as prescribed in this paragraph, and the balance which would have accrued to such packer shall be transferred into the Treasury as a miscellaneous receipt.
