Importer Security Filing (ISF) FAQs

1. What is Importer Security Filing (ISF)?

Importer Security Filing, commonly known as ISF, is a mandatory U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requirement for importers to provide specific information about their shipments before they arrive in the United States. It is aimed at enhancing national security and streamlining the customs clearance process.

2. Why is ISF filing required?

ISF filing is required to enable CBP to assess and address potential security risks associated with incoming shipments. By providing advance information, CBP can identify and address security concerns before the cargo arrives in the U.S., promoting a more secure and efficient supply chain.

3. When should I submit the ISF filing?

ISF filing must be submitted no later than 24 hours before the cargo is loaded onto the vessel bound for the U.S. It is crucial to adhere to this deadline to avoid penalties and ensure a smooth customs clearance process.

4. What information is required for ISF filing?

ISF filing requires specific information about the shipment, including but not limited to:

  • Seller name and address

  • Buyer name and address

  • Manufacturer name and address

  • Ship-to name and address

  • Commodity Harmonized System (HS) code

  • Container stuffing location

  • Consolidator name and address (if applicable)

  • Importer of Record (IOR) number or other identification

5. Can I amend an ISF filing once it's submitted?

Yes, amendments to the ISF filing can be made if there are changes or corrections to the provided information. However, amendments should be submitted well in advance of the cargo's arrival to avoid delays and potential penalties.

6. What happens if I fail to submit the ISF filing?

Failure to submit the ISF filing accurately and on time may result in penalties and delays in customs clearance. It is crucial to comply with ISF requirements to avoid such issues.

7. How can I submit my ISF filing?

ISF filings are typically submitted through the Automated Broker Interface (ABI) or through an authorized filing agent. Ensure that your chosen method complies with CBP regulations and guidelines.

8. Are there any exemptions to ISF filing?

While there are limited exemptions to ISF filing, it is essential to check with CBP to determine if your shipment qualifies for any exemptions. In most cases, importers are required to submit an ISF filing for their shipments.

9. Where can I find more information about ISF filing?

For additional information about ISF filing requirements, guidelines, and updates, refer to the CBP website or consult with our customer support team at email or call us at 877-542-5610.
