The ATA Carnet is an international customs document on the basis of which the crossing of the frontiers between the contracting parties to this convention is simplified for the goods under temporary importation, transit procedure or temporary exportation.
The advantages of the ATA Carnet are the following:
- goods under temporary importation can cross the state frontiers in a simplified procedure without being subject to customs duties and other charges;
- on the basis of one ATA Carnet, the same goods can be introduced into one contracting party to the Convention or more within the period of validity of the ATA Carnet not exceeding one year;
- all formalities regarding the selected customs procedure are arranged on the basis of one document (temporary exportation, transit, temporary importation, re-exportation and re-importation);
- each carnet is covered by a guarantee which secures the payment of the amount of customs duties which would be due in case the goods were not re-exported within the specified time limit.
The ATA Carnet is used for temporary importation / temporary exportation of various types of goods with a specific purpose, e.g. specimens, brochures, goods to be displayed at fairs or exhibitions, professional or research equipment etc. The ATA Carnet is not used for temporary importation of perishable goods, goods intended for consumption, processing or reparation.
The authority competent for issuing ATA Carnets in Slovenia is the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia.
The TIR Convention or the customs convention on the international transport of goods under cover of TIR Carnets introduces transit customs procedures for international transport of goods by road.
