Roanoke Insurance Group and USCIB have successfully confirmed the delay in implementation of the new Foreign Trade Regulations as pertains to ATA Carnet. Therefore ATA Carnets departing the United States WILL NOT be required to change their current practice on/or after April 5 as we originally reported on March 11 of this year. This 6 months delay allows us to continue to work with the U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (U.S. CBP) to seek a permanent exemption for ATA Carnets from the need to complete an Electronic Export Information filing (EEI) through the Automated Export System (AES).

Roanoke Insurance Group received the following FTR Letter No. 8 Notice of 180 Day Informed Compliance Period for Regulatory Changes stating that this memorandum serves to notify the trade community that the Census Bureau and U.S. CBP agree to provide an additional 180 days to come into compliance with the new requirements. During this time, no penalties will be issued for failure to comply with any new requirements found in the March 14, 2013 rule. However this does not change the EEI filing obligation for ATA Carnet shipments that require an export license.
