After great anticipation, we are pleased to announce that the Census Bureau’s International Trade Management Division (ITMD) published the Final Rule on Friday, May 15, 2015. This new rule, which revises the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR), Title 15, Part 30, finalizes the interim rule without change. The final ruling reinstates the previous filing exemptions in Sections 30.37(q) and (r) of the FTR for temporary exports, which includes ATA Carnets and goods that were imported under a Temporary Import Bond (TIB). Please note that these exemptions may only be used if filing is not specifically required per Section 30.2(a)(1)(iv) of the FTR.

In 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 and TIB shipments benefited from. These changes would have been effective and subject to a vigorous enforcement regime by U.S. 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 (USCIB), U.S. CBP and U.S. Census. The final rule can be found in its entirety here.

Once again, we would like to thank U.S. Census and U.S. CBP for working together with us to provide the best outcome for our customers and the trade. In addition we are very grateful to the Air Forwarders Association, the Pacific Coast Council and USCIB for their dedication and hard work to achieve this exemption. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at 1.800.CARNETS (1.800.227.6387) or Carnets@RoanokeTrade.com or visit us at www.RoanokeTrade.com/ATA-Carnet.
