Beginning January 26, 2009, importers and vessel operating ocean carriers will be required to provide U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) with advance notification for all ocean vessel shipments inbound to the United States. This advance notification is known as the Importer Security Filing ISF, and commonly referred to as the ISF 10+2 Importer Security Filing Program. The ISF 10+2 Importer Security Filing Program is to help prevent terrorist weapons from being transported to the United States and to improve CBP's ability to identify high-risk shipments so as to prevent smuggling and ensure cargo safety and security. Importers and Vessel Operating Carriers bringing cargo to the United States will be required to transmit certain information to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) about the cargo they are transporting prior to lading that cargo at foreign ports of entry.

What is Importer Serurity Filing ISF (known as the 10+2 Program)

The Importer Security Filing generally will consist of 10 additional data elements from U.S. importers. In addition 2 data set items will be required from carriers. The Importer Security Filing and additional data from carriers will enhance CBP's ability to identify high-risk cargo shipments.

Why is CBR requiring 10+2 Importer Security Filing Information

The ISF 10+2 Importer Security Filing regulations are specifically intended to fulfill the requirements of section 203 of the Security and Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006 and section 343(a) of the Trade Act of 2002, as amended by the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002. The SAFE Port Act requires the Secretary of Homeland Security, acting through the Commissioner of CBP, to promulgate regulations to require the electronic transmission of additional data elements for improved high-risk targeting, including appropriate security elements of entry data for cargo destined to the United States by vessel prior to loading at foreign seaports.
