What is the CBP Importer Security Filing (ISF) Program? Also Known as “10+2”

The Importer Security Filing initiative from CBP requires importers to provide additional advance trade data to CBP.

All import cargo (including FTZ and IT) needs to provide ISF (10) data elements.

● Importer of Record Number (IRS#, SSN)
● Consignee Number (IRS #, SSN, Passport)
● Seller Name & Address
● Buyer Name & Address
● Ship to Party
● Manufacturer (Supplier) Name & Address
● Country of Origin
● Commodity HTS (6-digit level)
● Container Stuffing Location (Flexible Timing up to 24 hours before arrival)
● Consolidator Name & Address (Flexible Timing up to 24 hours before arrival)

All transit cargo (FROB, IE, TE) require the filing of ISF (5) data elements

● Booking Party Name & Address
● Ship to Party
● Commodity HTS (6-digit level)
● Foreign Port of Unlading
● Place of Delivery

ISF “10+2” Best Practices

  • One ISF Importer per Filing
  • One Importer or Record per Filing
  • ISF Filing must be part of the same shipment
  • ISF must be arriving on the same vessel/voyage
  • ISFs are to be submitted at the “lowest” bill of lading level that was submitted in ACE Ocean
