ISF 10 + 2 PURPOSE

To help prevent terrorist weapons from being transported to the United States and to improve CBP's ability to identify high-risk shipments so as to prevent smuggling and ensure cargo safety and security. Importers and Vessel Operating Carriers bringing cargo to the United States will be required to transmit certain information to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) about the cargo they are transporting prior to lading that cargo at foreign ports of entry.

ABOUT CBP

In March 1, 2003, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, or CBP, was born as an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, merging functions of the former U.S. Customs Service, Immigration and Naturalization Service, Border Patrol, and Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. Many changes took place in preparation for this merger and many have occurred since in order to safeguard U.S. borders against high-risk cargo, contraband, and unsafe imports.
