NOTE FOR THE USE OF THE INFORMATION DOCUMENT (T2-640)

1. The exporter must ensure that, subject to any conditions they may lay down, the Customs authorities of the country of temporary importation are in a position to establish the identity of the goods.

2. The duly completed Information Document (I.D.) must be presented to the Customs authorities whenever the goods are cleared.

3. If the goods are to be re-imported in split consignments the following procedure applies.


(a) Temporary exportation :

The exporter produces the I.D. in duplicate. The Customs certify both copies (Part I) and return them to the exporter who sends the original I.D. to the importer who keeps it until the last split re-exportation. The exporter keeps the duplicate I.D.

(b) Temporary importation :

The importer produces the original I.D. to the Customs who certify Part II and return the I.D. to him.

(c) Split re-exportation :

The re-exporter completes an additional Part III (including Cage G) and produces it to the Customs together with the original I.D. The Customs certify the additional Part III after checking it against the I.D. The re-exporter sends the additional Part III to re-importer.

(d) Split re-importation :

The re-importation produces the additional Part III and his copy of the I.D. to the Customs for checking against each other.

(e) Last split re-exportation :

The re-exporter completes Part III of the original I.D. including Cage G. The Customs certify the original I.D. and return it to the re-exporter who sends it to the re-importer.

(f) Last split re-importation :

The re-importer produces both copies of the I.D. to the Customs.
