Roanoke Insurance Group is very pleased to inform you that our hard work has paid off in securing exemption from the Electronic Export Filing (EEI) filing requirement for ATA Carnets! We received verbal confirmation from both U.S. Customs and Border protection (CBP) and U.S. Census Bureau yesterday. U.S. Census is currently working on revising the rules, which should be published very soon. October 2 is no longer a looming deadline for ATA Carnets!

How Did the FTR Affect ATA Carnet Benefits?

March 2013, several changes were made to the U.S Census Bureau’s Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) pertaining to the filing of export documentation under the Automated Export System. One significant change was the removal of the exemption that ATA Carnet shipments benefited from. These changes would have been effective and subject to a vigorous enforcement regime by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on October 2. Roanoke was instrumental in obtaining this re-exemption by representing our customers on the EEI/AES working group alongside the U.S. Council for International Business, US CBP and US Census.

Until further notice ATA Carnet shipments will continue to include “CARNET” as an exemption statement on required manifest documents. In the event that the cargo carrier refuses the shipment due to missing exemption code, we recommend, only during this period of informed compliance, reverting back to the former exemption code “CARNET NO EEI per 30.37(q)” for U.S. ATA Carnets and “30.37(r)” for foreign ATA Carnet shipments. Once the revised rules are officially published we will provide guidance on how to handle ATA Carnet shipments. Please be aware that these exemptions only apply to ATA Carnets that cover commodities that do not require export licenses. All exports from the U.S. that require a participating government agency export license have never been exempt from the EEI filing requirement.
