As the national guaranteeing and issuing association for the ATA Carnet in Norway, Oslo Chamber of Commerce (OCC) has issued the following guidance for holders using Norwegian Carnets in the United Kingdom (UK)
Brexit is here, and UK will no longer be an EU member and should be treated as an independent country. In fact for Norwegian holder there is not any changes. A set of white counterfoil and voucher will be necessary for each Carnet visit to the UK. However, we do recommend to bring one set of blue transit vouchers in addition to the white set.
However there are some changes with regard to the sites where the ATA Carnet can be processed :
