A further expansion of the ATA Carnet chain can be foreseen in the near future following Trinidad and Tobagoâ€™s recent ratification of the International Convention for the temporary admission of goods â€“ also known as the Istanbul Convention.
The Istanbul Convention governs the ATA Carnet System, which is administered by the Brussels-based World Customs Organization (WCO) and the ICC World Chambers Federation.
