International Convention to Facilitate the Importation of Commercial Samples and Advertising Material
The International Convention to Facilitate the Importation of Commercial Samples and Advertising Material is a 1952 United Nations multilateral treaty. States that ratify the treaty agree to allow product samples and advertising material into the county duty-free.
The Convention allows the duty-free importation of commercial samples that are determined to be of "negligible value". It also allows the duty-free importation of advertising material such as catalogues, price lists, and trade notices.
The Convention was concluded in Geneva on 7 November 1952. It was signed by six states and entered into force on 20 November 1955. As of 2013, the Convention has 66 state parties.
