Pay attention to:
The Carnet ATA may only be used for items which are not sold or used at destination.
The consignor has to ensure that exactly the same goods, which were imported, are also exported again. Customos Authorities can check this by doublechecking Serial numbers, comparison of photographs etc. etc.
The validity period auf a ATA Carnet is one year.
The user oft he Carnet ATA is responsible for the strict adherence to the regulations.
For machines and equipment, it is recommended to specify the serial number as well as type, make and manufacturer.
Ist’s not possible to dispatch your Carnet-ATA shipment by mail since the goods must be accompanied.
Under certain circumstances the export of the goods (with a already opened ATA Carnet) is also possile outside normal customs business hours, including Saturdays and Sundays. In case of questions or doubts please contact the relevant customs office directly.
The carnet system is regulated internationally by customs agreements of the World Customs Organization (WCO). It is managed by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) with the help of its sub-organizations - the World ATA Council (WATAC).
The Chamber of Commerce Chamber (opening the ATA Carnet) guarantees for local duties to the customs organization of the importing country. This means that if the goods are not re-exported within a reasonable period, the levy must be reimbursed by the consignor.
