Your Guide to navigate the import process

ISF, or Importer Security Filing, is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulation that requires importers and vessel-operating carriers to provide specific information about cargo before it is shipped to the United States. The goal of ISF filing is to enhance the security of the U.S. maritime environment by improving the ability to identify high-risk shipments.

Here are the key points regarding ISF filing:

  1. Timing:

    • ISF must be filed no later than 24 hours before the cargo is laden aboard a vessel destined for the United States. After you receive the ISF documents from your seller, it is best to file early at least 2-3 days before departure.

  2. Who Files ISF:

    • Importer of Record (IOR) is responsible for filing the ISF through their authorized agent.

  3. Documents Required:

    • The ISF requires a copy of the ISF Information Sheet which contains the shipping data, a copy of the commercial invoice and also the proof of personal or business tax ID. For car imports, the bill of lading  would be sufficient info to file the ISF. 

  4. Penalties for Non-Compliance:

    • Failure to comply with ISF requirements can result in penalties, shipment delays, or even refusal of the cargo at the port. CBP may issue late ISF penalties of $5,000 at their discretion.

  5. How to File ISF:

    • ISF is filed electronically through the Automated Broker Interface (ABI) or the Automated Manifest System (AMS) through the customs broker after you have provided them the documents needed to file.

    • Many importers use the services of customs brokers or other agents to handle the filing process.

  6. ISF Filing Process:

    • Obtain the necessary information about the shipment, including details about the goods, parties involved, and the shipping process.

    • Work with a customs broker who will use their electronic filing system to submit the ISF information to CBP.

    • Ensure that the filing is done within the specified timeframe to avoid penalties.

It's important to note that ISF is distinct from the Customs Entry filing, which is usually done closer to the arrival of the goods in the United States. Importers should work closely with their customs brokers or freight forwarders to ensure compliance with ISF requirements.

For the most up-to-date and accurate information, it is recommended to check with U.S. Customs and Border Protection or consult with a customs broker experienced in U.S. import regulations. The rules and requirements may be subject to change, and a professional can provide guidance tailored to your specific situation.

The Customs Entry, often referred to as Entry Summary, is a formal declaration made to the customs authorities by the importer of record or their authorized agent to facilitate the release of imported goods into the commerce of the United States. It involves providing detailed information about the imported goods, their value, classification, and other relevant details.

Here are the key points regarding Customs Entry filing:

  1. Timing:

    • The Customs Entry is typically filed after the arrival of the goods in the United States but before the goods are released from the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

  2. Who Files the Customs Entry:

    • The importer of record or their customs broker is responsible for filing the Customs Entry.

  3. Information Required:

    • The Customs Entry includes detailed information about the imported goods, such as their description, value, country of origin, and classification under the Harmonized System (HS).

  4. Entry Types:

    • There are different types of Customs Entries, and the specific type depends on factors such as the nature of the goods, their value, and whether they are subject to any special regulations or duties.

    • Common types of Customs Entries include consumption entries (for goods intended for domestic consumption), warehouse entries (for goods placed in bonded warehouses), and drawback entries (for goods eligible for duty drawback).

  5. Duty and Tax Assessment:

    • CBP uses the information provided in the Customs Entry to assess applicable duties, taxes, and fees.

  6. Release of Goods:

    • Once the Customs Entry is accepted and any required payments are made, CBP will release the goods for further distribution.

  7. Penalties for Non-Compliance:

    • Non-compliance with Customs Entry requirements can result in penalties, delays, or refusal of entry for the goods.
