When you are satisfied that the carnet is in order and that the temporary exportation may take place, complete Box H of the green cover sheet by:

 

Item Information required
   
(a) Note any additional comments you have made in column 7 of the General List, ensuring the comments are reflected in the General Lists on the other copies.
(b) State whether or not the goods have been examined.
(c) Insert your local station reference number.
(d) Details of your office, its location, date, signature and office date stamp.

The UK will allow a carnet holder to split the consignment on first use of the ATA Carnet.

This means that the general list may have 10 items but only 5 are taken out on the first trip. This will be reflected on the yellow and white import and export sheets.
