“10” – Importer Requirements (24 hours prior to lading)U.S. Bound Cargo (Includes FTZ and IT) : requires the electronic filing of an Importer Security Filing (ISF) comprised of 10 data elements.
Note: Update no later than 24 hours prior to arrival in a U.S. Port.
Note: Submit as soon as possible but no later than 24 hours prior to arrival in a U.S. port.
“10” – Importer Requirements (24 hours prior to lading)Transit Cargo (FROB, IE and TE): requires the electronic filing of an Importer Security Filing (ISF) comprised of 5 data elements.
The following three data items must be linked at the shipment or entry level.
1. Name and address of the entity that last manufactures, assembles, produces, or grows the commodity
2. Or, name and address of the supplier of the finished goods in the country from which the goods are leaving.
Challenges And Obstacles
-Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) vs. Trade Secrets Act.
-Policy is to treat ISF data submitted to Customs as confidential.
-Customs regulation changed to limit availability of data under FOIA CFR 103.31a
Sale In Transit, Immediate Exportation (IE), Transportation and Exportation (T &E)
& Foreign Trade Zones (FTZ)
-Only 5 data elements required, unless a split shipment is intended. Sale in transit
will require new documents and new filing.
Delivery Point Issues
-DDP means the foreign shipper must file because it is the importer.
-FOB origin. The importer needs to obtain data from the shipper.
-CIF destination. The importer needs to obtain more data from the shipper.
Actions Available to Importers
-Make certain the data obtained from the seller is timely and accurate.
-Verify the accuracy of the HTSUS tariff classification data.
-Submit a range of data if the origin or manufacturer is uncertain. But 24 hr. limit.
-Claim the right to confidential treatment of some data (shipper consignee and
notify party) on vessel manifests 19 CFR § 103.31(a).
-Unipac/Continental commitment to serve clients by submitting comments or
questions to Customs on behalf of Importers
