Delayed Enforcement Continues for ATA Carnet Shipments

Roanoke Insurance Group regularly checks on the status of the requested re-exemption for ATA Carnets from the Electronic Export Information (EEI) filing requirement under the new Foreign Trade Regulations. As of today we still have no response on the status and thus no further update to share. We can tell you that US Census has released their official FAQ on how ATA Carnet shipments are to be handled during this period of Informed Compliance. Please click here to view the Foreign Trade Regulations’ FAQ; page 19 contains the following language specific to ATA Carnet:

Do carnet shipments require filing during the period of informed compliance? 

The period of informed compliance will take place from the revised FTR effective date of April 5, 2014 through October 2, 2014. During this period, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will not penalize the parties to the export transaction (for example: the carnet holders, USPPIs, or authorized agents) who fail to file Electronic Export Information (EEI) for these shipments. Carriers may load carnet shipments without an ITN. As a temporary solution to ensure that carriers will load cargo, the USPPI or the authorized agent may include “CARNET” as an exemption statement on required manifest documents as required per Section 30.45.

We are still working with US Customs and Border Protection, US Census and the US Council for International Business to understand the requirements, find equivalences where possible, and continue to request exemption status for all if not most ATA Carnet shipments that do not require export licenses.
