The process of applying for an ATA Carnet with boomerang carnets® includes the compliance process. There is no additional form or processing to complete.

*London Chamber of Commerce and Industry carnet instructions dated 2015 January state: "Lodge the adequate security to cover duty, etc. - The ATA Carnet provides a guarantee to the Customs of a foreign country into which the goods are temporarily imported that all duties, taxes etc. will be paid to them if the conditions under which they allow these into the country are breached. The issuing Chamber must receive an equivalent security from the Carnet user.This security must be for an amount equal to the highest rate of duty and taxes applicable to the goods in any country of destination, and transit if applicable. It will disregard any preferential tariffs that may be in force at the time because Customs authorities may themselves ignore such preferential rates.
