What is ATA Carnet? 

The ATA Carnet is an international customs document that allows the holder to temporarily (up to one year) import goods without any document between the contracting countries within the scope of international Temporary Import Contract (Istanbul Contract in short) and its Appendixes. 
ATA System is carried out through guarantor institutions stated to be appointed officially in their own country under the coordination of Worldwide Chambers Federation (WCF) and Worldwide ATA Council (WATAC) within the body of ICC (International Chamber of Commerce). 

What is it used for? 

International ATA System is formed for the benefit of the parties making temporary import transactions such as customs offices, persons, institutions and associations. There is no need to make any other transaction neither by customs nor importers during the import transactions for all goods coming with an ATA Carnet guaranteed internationally. ATA Carnets which can be arranged by the carnet holder can be controlled by the customs easily. All these factors help to shorten the transmission period from the customs both for the import and export of the goods coming with ATA Carnet. In addition to these, the system enables the ATA carnet holders to make more than one temporary import to the contracting countries with an ATA carnet within the valid period of the carnet (the carnet is valid for one year after the arrangement of the carnet).
