Single ISF Filing ( ISF 10+2 )
What is Single ISF Filing?
The Single ISF Filing 10+2 or Importer Security Filing (ISF), often known as 10+2, is a United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) import requirement that needs containerized cargo information for security purposes.
When and who files my Single ISF Filing?
ISF must be file, 24 hours before your shipment could leave foreign port. ISF will be filed on your behalf by your customs broker. It could be Standard ISF Filing or Late ISF Filing.
What happens if ISF is skipped or not filed?
Because liquidated damages cannot be assessed for the failure to file an ISF if no bond is in place, CBP will withhold the release or transfer of the cargo until CBP receives the required ISF information and has had the opportunity to review the documentation and conduct any necessary examination. CBP also reserves the right to refuse unloading of merchandise for which no ISF has been filed, and if such cargo is unladen without permission, it may be subject to seizure.
Do I have to file an ISF for every import or export transaction?
- If you are importing from Guam, American Samoa, or the Virgin Islands, you must submit an ISF.
- If you are exporting from the United States to Puerto Rico or importing from Puerto Rico (NO ISF required).
- If your products are delivered into the United States by road or rail after arriving in Canada by ship (as long as the shipment is accompanied by an AMS bill of lading) (must file ISF).
- This ISF form sample can be found here. Additionally, see here for the comprehensive ISF 10+2 filing procedures.
Key to file ISF
The key to file ISF is that you must file 48 hours (we prefer 72 hours) before your consignment can be loaded into a freight vessel, even if your data is incomplete. You can always modify your ISF filing and re-submit it 72 hours before your shipment arrives at a U.S. port. However, you must re-submit your ISF; otherwise, CBP can and will impose a penalty / fee of up to $5,000 for each infringement.
Importers are responsible for filing an Importer Security Filing (ISF 10+2) as of January 26, 2010. Separate from the carrier's manifest and the broker's / importer's entry / entry file / custom broker is the Importer Security Filing (ISF 10+2).
NOTE: For each bill of lading (BL) / shipment, the ISF 10+2 filing is required. Also, each Importer Security Filing (ISF 10+2) must have the same parameters, such as spelling of all names, letters, and numbers on your oversea factory's shipments / invoices.
