The ATR Certificate entitles goods, which are in 'free circulation' in the EU (i.e. the goods are EU-originating, or on importation into the EU all the relevant duties and taxes have been paid) to receive preferential import duty treatment when shipped to Turkey.
This applies to all eligible goods except agricultural goods, minerals and steel which require an EUR1 Movement Certificate.
When completing an ATR form it is advisable that the exporter or authorised agent consults HM Revenue & Customs Notice 812
The ATA Carnet is an international Customs document which allows the temporary importation of commercial samples, professional equipment or goods going to a trade fair or exhibition in a country which is part of the ATA Carnet system.
Without an ATA Carnet it would be necessary to go through each country's Customs procedures for the temporary admission of goods, i.e. lodging a temporary import bond.
The ATA Carnet simplifies the process and enables you to exhibit your goods to a global audience with the minimum of red tape.
