FICCI India's Sole National Issuing & Guaranteeing Association (NIGA) for ATA Carnet
ATA System
In 1961, the Customs Cooperation Council (CCC) - forerunner of the World Customs Organization (WCO) - adopted the "Customs Convention on the ATA Carnet for the Temporary Admission of Goods".

The customs conventions corresponding to the three main categories of goods covered by the system are :

These various Conventions are progressively being replaced by one single International Customs Convention on temporary admission named the WCO Istanbul Convention.

Over the last 40 years, the Carnet system has spread from just a few West European countries to most of the industrialized world, including a growing number of developing countries and emerging economies.

These Conventions govern the requirements for temporary duty-free admission of a reasonable number of goods from participating countries.
