  • Free Trade Agreements (FTA) & Origin

    Free Trade Agreements & Origin

    Henk Hartman & Yuri Florentinus 

    During this session, the differences and the similarities between non-preferential and preferential origin rules will be addressed.

    Most companies are more familiar with non-preferential origin, the basis for the origin declared on a Certificate of Origin for export purposes. However, with regard to preferential (Free Trade Agreement based) origin rules, many companies decide to keep away from implementing preferential origin in their outbound supply chains. They do this due to the complexity of EU export- and non-EU destination Customs requirements and the risk of fully meeting them.

    A result may be that your non-EU customers will miss interesting duty savings on their rights, in case the products that you export are not yet zero duties rated in the countries of destination. Knowledge is power! When you know the detailed rules and find out how to meet them, you can enable your non-EU customers to benefit from reduced or even zero import duties.

    You'll find out more about these topics during this session. Do you already have a question or comment upfront? Please let us know. Henk & Yuri will discuss your question during the session.

  • ATA Carnets

    ATA Carnets! What are the benefits and challenges?

    Lonneke Verberk & Jolande van Ochten

    An ATA Carnet is a paper document that can be used to temporarily import and export goods without the need for a customs declaration. The major advantage of an ATA Carnet is that you don’t have to pay a deposit in the country of temporary importation.

    In times of digitization a paper document can be seen as very old-fashion. Therefore, the process of ATA carnets is currently completely begin renewed by, among others, the digitization project of the ATA Carnet. In addition, we are expecting an explosive increase in the use of ATA Carnets with the Brexit coming up.

    During this session, we will discuss both challenges and benefits of the ATA Carnet, best practices and developments. Obviously, there will be room to exchange experiences regarding the use of this document with other professionals that are working in the Supply Chain.
