ISF / 10+2
Importer’s Security Filing

Graphic: Homeland Security Emblem Graphic: Homeland Security Emblem

U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Importer’s Security Filing (ISF), also known as the 10+2 Ruling, became effective on January 26, 2009.

The regulation requires importers to electronically provide data to Customs on vessels destined to the U.S. before vessel departure. IMPORTANT: It applies to only sea freight shipments.

Importers are responsible for the 10 elements which can be found on the attached form.

Customs has established flexible enforcement for this ruling. This means Customs will show restraint in enforcing the rule for one year from the effective date. However Customs expects importers to make satisfactory progress towards compliance and make a good faith to comply with this rule.

Upon its enforcement date of January 26, 2010, any cargo shipped without a timely/accurate ISF will result in a Customs penalty of USD $5,000 to the Importer.

It is most important that the Importer request from the suppliers per shipment the information on the
U.S. Customs ISF 10+2 Data Sheet**. Customs will want to see a document effort from the importer to comply with the regulation should there be any errors on ISF’s after January, 2010.
