A carnet can be used by private travellers or businesses. When a carnet is issued, the person who can use it will named on the front cover of the carnet, this person is the 'holder'. The carnet can be used by the holder or a representative named on the carnet.

Whether or not the holder owns the goods they will be responsible for any customs charges that may become due if the goods are incorrectly used or not re-exported from the country visited. The holder must also ensure:
