Update: Replacement Carnets Procedure for Belgium

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Belgium's National Guaranteeing Association, the Fédération des Chambres de Commerce et d’Industrie de Belgique, has informed boomerang carnets® of a change in procedures regarding Replacement Carnets, sometimes referred to as carnet extension. The Belgian customs is undergoing a reorganization process and seeking the approval for a Replacement Carnet can become difficult.

With immediate effect, Carnet Holders who want to keep the goods past the Carnet expiry dates, have the following options:

  1. To seek direct approval from Belgian Customs; or
  2. To convert the Carnet entry into an equivalent of a “Temporary Importation Under Bond” (TIB); or
  3. To re-export the goods on or prior to the Carnet expiry date or the “Final Date of Re-exportation”, whichever comes first.

For more information contact Monika Jadeszko, Senior ATA Customer Service and Sales Representative, Carnet Specialist at 800.ATA.2900 or by email.
