UPDATE: ENFORCEMENT DELAYED ON New Export Filing Requirements & Carnets

Thursday, April 3, 2014

UPDATE: ENFORCEMENT DELAYED FOR 180 DAYS TO OCTOBER 2ND 2014. SEE NEW ADVISORY FOR DETAILS.


New Foreign Trade Regulations go into effect on April 5th, 2014. Collecting Electronic Export Information (EEI) for carnet shipped goods is part of the Federal government's effort to secure our borders and the international supply chain. Details of the changes have been published in a new Advisory.


Here are the Top 3 Things You Need To Know:

  1. For boomerang carnets®' customers, not much has changed. We have always been able to file EEI on behalf of carnet users and will continue to do so.
  2. There are 3 MAJOR exemptions to the new regulations: hand-carries, exports to Canada, values under $2500. A Carnet Specialist can confirm whether or not your shipment is exempt.
  3. Goods subject to export licensing or other export controls are NEVER exempt. This hasn't changed.

Boomerang Carnets® Can File The EEI For Carnet Users and Freight Forwarders

Boomerang carnets® can file the EEI via the Automated Export System (AES), for carnet users subject to the requirement before, during and/or after a carnet application is submitted. 
Boomerang carnets® has been filing SEDs and EEI data (as an AES data filer) for ATA Carnet users for 15+ years.

Carnet Specialist can assist you and answer any questions on this new requirement. For immediate assistance, call the boomerang carnets® Carnet HelpLine® at 800.ATA.2900.
