Si Ie bureau destinataire est en etat de fournir les renseignemen ts sur Ie sort definitif de l'envoi, il complete la fornmle et la retourne au bureau d'origine. Lorsque Ie sort de l'envoi ne peut Ctre etabli par Ie bureau de destination, celui-ci constate Ie fait sur la formule et la reexpedie au bureau d'origine en y ajoutant, autant que possible, une declara- tion du destinataire constatant qu'il n'a pas rec;m renvoi. Dans ce cas, l'Administration d'origine complete la formuleen yindiquant les donnees de la transmissIOn a la premiere Administration inter- mediaire. Il l'adresse ensuite a cette derniere Administration, qui y consigne ses observations et la transmet eventuellement a l'Ad- ministration suivante. La reel a- mation passe ainsi d'une Adminis- tration a l'autre jusqu'a ce que Ie sort de renvoi reclamc soit Ctabli. L'Administration qui a effectue la remise au destinataire, ou qui, Ie cas echeant, ne peut etablir ni la remise, ni la transmis- sion reguliere a une autre Admi- nistration, constate Ie fait sur la formule et la renvoie a l'Adminis- tration d'origine. 3. -Les Administrations d'ori- gineetdedestinationpeuvent,d'un commun accord, faire transmettre la reclamation de bureau a bureau en suivant la meme voie d'achemi- nement que l'envoi. Dans ce cas, les recherches se poursuivent depuis l'Administra- tion d'origine jusqu'a I'Adminis- tration de destination en obser- vant la procedure visce au dernier alinea du § 2. 4.- Toute Administration peut demander, par une notification adressee au Bureau international, que les reclamations qui con- same sender addressed to the same addressee. 2 The inquiry is as a general Action by office of • .' destination. rule, sent directly by the office of origin to the office of destination; such transmission takes place without letter of transmittal and in a sealed envelope. If the office of destination is in a posi- tion to furnish information as to the final disposal made of the article, it completes the fonu and returns it to the office of origin. 'When the disposal of the article can not be established by the office of destination, the latter states the fact on the form and returns it to the office of origin, attaching thereto, as far as possi- ble, a declaration of the addressee stating that he has not received the article. In that case, the Administration of origin com- pletes the form by indicating thereon the particulars of dis- patch to the first intenuediate Administration. It then trans- mits it to this latter Administra- tion, which places its observations thereon and transmits it to the following Administration, if any. The inquiry thus passes from one I n v est i gat inn •• • . through the sever.u AdmInIstratIOn to another untIl Administrations. the disposal of the article in- quired about is established. The Administration which has effected delivery to the addressee, or which can not prove either de- livery or regular transmission to another Administration, as the case may be, shows the fact on the form and returns it to the Administration of origin. 3. The Administrations of ori- gin and destination may, by common consent, cause the in- quiry to be transmitted from office to office, following the same route as the article. In that case, the investigations are continued from the Admin- istration of origin as far as the Administration of destination, ob- serving the procedure indicated in the last paragraph of Section 2. 4.
