ATA Carnet

by Roanoke Trade

After much anticipation USCIB announced that Brazil has started accepting ATA Carnets for professional equipment and exhibitions and fairs! This could not come at a better time with the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games being held this year in Rio.

ATA Carnets are, simply put, passports for goods as they facilitate temporary entry into over 100 countries. Brazil has adopted and now is implementing the ATA Carnet system which will ease the requirements for companies and athletes involved in Rio 2016.

The trade community is directly impacted by CBP’s importer security filing (ISF, also known as 10+2) requirements. ATA Carnet shipments are no exception, as ATA Carnets are not exempt from ISF. However, ATA Carnet shipments are exempt from posting the bond required of other shipments entering or re-entering the U.S. via ocean vessel. Except for the provision of the six digit HTSUS codes, the information needed to complete the ISF can be found on the ATA Carnet or available from the customs broker clearing the entry.

As of today we still have no response on the status and thus no further update to share.
