Importer Security Filing (10 + 2)


Importers and carriers bringing cargo into the U.S. on maritime vessels will soon have to provide U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) with even more data. This new proposal from CBP has been named 10+2.
The 10+2 proposal requires carriers to provide two additional data sets and importers to file 10 additional data sets. The new importer transmission, called the Importer Security Filing (ISF), is separate from the carrier’s manifest and the broker’s entry. A key part to the ISF is that it must be accepted by CBP 24 hours prior to the container being loaded at the foreign port.


In the ISF, the importer will be responsible for filing:
1.Manufacturer (or supplier) name and address
2.Seller name and address
3.Buyer name and address
4.Ship to name and address
5.Container stuffing location
6.Consolidator (stuffer) name and address
7.Importer of record number / FTZ (Free Trade Zone) applicant identification number
8.Consignee number(s)
9.Country of origin
10.Commodity HTSUS number (up to the 6 digit level required, 10 is accepted)
