ATA/CPD Carnets Manual

Third country issued ATA carnets for temporary importation: action at the office of exit

The basic checks are as per ATACPD06100. Box H must be completed as follows:

Item Action required
   
H(a) No specific action required but by completing this section, you are confirming that all the goods on the General List have been declared for re-exportation.
H(b) Record details of any goods detailed on the carnet, presented but not re-exported. This will include details of any diversion entries presented.
H(c) Record details of any goods detailed on the carnet, not presented and not re-exported. This will include details of any diversion entries presented.
H(d) Insert the local office reference number.
H(e) The office of entry should have completed this.

In the case of goods entered in the UK, this office will be the National Carnet Unit (NCU).

In the case of goods entered elsewhere in the EU, it will be the responsible office in that Member State.    
  H(f) Insert any other relevant remarks and then insert details of your office, the date, signature, and office date stamp.

Boxes H (b) and H (c) are important because they allow the NCU to pursue any items that may have been brought into the EU without payment of the relevant import taxes.

When you have finalised your checks and completed the white re-exportation voucher, detach it from the carnet and send it immediately to the office named in Box H(e).

Finally, you must complete the white re-exportation counterfoil. This will repeat much of the information put onto the white voucher.

3 Action taken in respect of goods not produced and not re-exported
