ATA Carnets & TIBs Officially Exempt from Filing EEI

Tuesday, January 19, 2016


5/15/2015 UPDATE

Final Rule Published in Federal Register

SUMMARY: The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) issued a final rule amending the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) to eliminate the reporting requirement for temporary exports, which includes Carnets, and goods previously imported on a Temporary Import Bond (TIB). This final rule is being implemented to ensure consistency with the Customs Convention on the ATA Carnet for the Temporary Admission of Goods (ATA Convention) and reduce filing burden on the trade community. On September 12, 2014, the Census Bureau published this rule on an interim final basis. The Census Bureau is finalizing this rule without change.

9/12/2014 UPDATE
Interim Final Rule Published In Federal Register

Effective September 12th, 2014, ATA Carnets and Temporary Importations Under Bond (TIBs) will be exempt from filing electronic export information in the Automated Export System. Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg P.A., who provided legal support in this request, have reported that this update will be published in tomorrow's Federal Register. As least for the near future, this is the final chapter in a regulatory negotiation that threatened to bog down trade for U.S. and foreign carnet users. As always, controlled exports require EEI filings. For more information contact an ATA Carnet Specialist: 800.ATA.2900.
