Huntington Beach, California - On January 26, 2010, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has officially begun enforcement of the interim final rule on the Importer Security Filing ISF, also known as the 10+2 rule. The ISF rule has been in development for the past two years in the works. It requires importers and carriers to electronically transmit twelve data elements not included on the standard ocean cargo manifest. CBP has been working with logistics and supply chain groups to get importers prepared.

From the current information we have received, CBP enforcement will enacted in three stages. Beginning January 26 to April 30, 2010, CBP enforcement will focus on importers that have never filed the data, and filers that file incomplete data or don’t meet the deadline the 24 hours before a vessel sails from a foreign port.

Starting about May 2010, CPB will initiate holding shipments of noncompliant companies, and begin additional enforcement measures and random inspections. Sometime around June, CBP will start assessing liquidated damages. If everything is on schedule, the Importer Security Filing program will be in full enforcement by year-end.
