Customs Full Importer Security Filing Enforcement & Liquidated Damages Begins on July 9, 2013

Dear Valued Customer,

On June 7, 2013 Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has issued the following announcement:

Initiation Date for Liquidated Damages for ISF Non-Compliance

In order to achieve the most compliance with the least disruption to the trade and to domestic port operations, CBP has been applying a measured and commonsense approach to Importer Security Filing (ISF or 10+2) enforcement.

On July 9, 2013 CBP will begin full enforcement of ISF, and will start issuing liquidated damages against ISF importers and carriers for ISF non-compliance.

Please visit http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/trade/cargo_security/carriers/security_filing/

for more information and send questions to security_filing_general@cbp.dhs.gov.
(CSMS# 13-000298 and 13-000299)

The ISF program requires advance cargo information submission to CBP within 24 hours before the cargo is loaded onto an ocean vessel that is destined to the USA. Failure to submit a timely and accurate ISF filing can result in liquidated damages of $5,000 per violation, and up to two violations (up to $10,000) per ISF filing.

CBP has stated that the Interim Final Rule on ISF still applies while the agency continues to work on finishing a Final Rule.

JJB encourages all customers that have had challenges meeting the requirements for timeliness and or accuracy to work with all parties involved within your supply chains to provide timely and accurate ISF filings to CBP in compliance with the rule.

In order to process your ISF filing requests timely, when JJB has been elected by you to file ISF on your behalf, please provide a complete and accurate ISF Request at least three (3) business days prior to lading aboard a vessel destined to the USA.

For import transactions consisting of multiple items, please provide a complete ISF request five (5) business days prior to lading aboard a vessel destined to the USA.

Thank you for your understanding that James J. Boyle & Co. cannot guarantee timely filing and is not responsible for any liquidated damages claims issued by CBP if your ISF request is received late and/or incomplete or inaccurate.

Further information on ISF, also known as “10 + 2” can be found at the URL listed above, and also in our previous newsletter dated January 15, 2010.
