7. (1) For the purposes of this Act, where a quantity of bountiable refined
tin has been produced by-

   (a)  the refining of tin concentrate referred to in paragraph 6 (3) (b);

   (b)  the refining of other tin concentrate or another process (including a
        process involving the use of scrap tin or similar material, not being
        waste to which sub-section 3 (2) applies) or two or more processes,
        the Comptroller-General shall determine, in accordance with sound
        metallurgical principles, the amount, by weight, of that refined tin
        that was produced by the refining of the tin concentrate so referred

(2) Where the Comptroller-General is unable to determine an amount of refined
tin for the purpose of sub-section (1), that amount shall be taken to be such
amount as is estimated by the Comptroller-General, having regard to all
relevant circumstances, to be an appropriate amount of that refined tin for
the purposes of that sub-section.

(3) Without limiting the generality of sub-section (2), the Comptroller-
General shall, for the purposes of that sub-section, be taken to be unable to
determine an amount of refined tin if the Comptroller-General, after taking
all reasonable steps to ascertain and verify information necessary for the
determination of the amount (including information relating to tin concentrate
used in producing the refined tin), has been unable to ascertain or verify
that information by reason of the failure of a smelter to supply information
or to permit the Comptroller-General or an authorized officer to inspect
documents or other records relating to information or otherwise.
