An ATA Carnet is an international customs document that provides duty-free customs clearance for temporary imports and exports into over 100 countries. ATA Carnet simplifies temporary entry by eliminating the need to post a temporary import bond or file a duty drawback. Virtually all goods, whether hand carried or cargo-shipped, may be covered by ATA Carnets.

U.S. Council for International Business (USCIB) was appointed in 1968 by U.S. Customs and the U.S. Treasury to be the National Guarantee body for the ATA Carnet in the United States.

The workshop will cover the following:

  • Benefits to using ATA Carnets for your temporary export needs
  • How the ATA Carnet works including:
    • Customs clearance both US and foreign
    • Best practices to mitigate a Customs claim from USCBP or foreign Customs
    • Managing split shipments, partial shipments and transit operations
    • Replacing lost or stolen documents and managing theft of the goods while on ATA Carnet
    • Sales of goods exported on an ATA Carnet
    • ATA Carnet country specific requirements and nuances
    • Extending the validity period beyond the first year
    • The latest exemption status and interpretation for both ISF and EEI filings
