Enforcement of Importer Security Filing to Begin


As you may have heard, on July 9, 2013, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) began full enforcement of its Importer Security Filing (ISF) program known as 10+2. This was originally announced on the CBP website on June 7, 2013.

It is now more important than ever that your ISF data is accurate and complete when filed, including all of the required elements. CBP may assess liquidated damages in accordance with the relevant mitigation guidelines which were published in the July 17, 2009 CBP Bulletin.

If you have not yet begun filing your ISF through a designated ISF agent, please do not delay.

FedEx Trade Networks can assist you in your compliance efforts by offering two primary ISF solutions for your ocean cargo:

  • Designate FedEx Trade Networks to file ISF data on your behalf As a customs broker and freight forwarder, FedEx Trade Networks has the expertise necessary to file your ISF for you.

  • Utilize the self-filing option via FedEx Trade Networks My Global Trade Data, a secure web application and single source for viewing ISF status and entry data in real time.

Email FedEx Trade Networks today for more information on how we can help you meet your ISF needs.
