Importer Security Filing (ISF) Enforcement Update May 5, 2015
On May 5, 2015, there was a final webinar as the last educational outreach effort before the expiration of the extended 12-month period during which Headquarters reviews all the requests for liquidated damages claims prior to issuance. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) held an Importer Security Filing (ISF) webinar to discuss the final ISF enforcement stage which will begin on May 14, 2015.

Under the new guidelines, local ports will have the authority to issue liquidated damages without obtaining headquarters’ approval, and will no longer be required to submit three warnings prior to issuing penalties. However, the strategy provides for local discretion at the port, and authorities can continue to submit three warning letters to noncompliant importers.

The changes only apply to ISF-10, and ISF-5s are not impacted.

CBP is currently working on an updated FAQ document to accommodate for the changes.
