Importer Security Filing (ISF) Update

On Friday, June 17, 2016 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sent out an ISF update stating the following.

For shipments that are on the water on or after June 30, 2016, CBP ports will no longer be required to send requests for liquidated damages (LD) claims to Headquarters for review, and the “three-strikes” approach to LD claims against importers’ bonds will also end. There is no change to cargo holds for ISF non-compliance; ports may hold cargo instead of (or in addition to) initiating LD claims.

If you have any questions you wish to discuss with CBP, please submit an email to security filing general.
Donna Seithel or Beth Morris are also available should you have any questions or by phone at 843-577-3630.
