Importer Security Filing Enforcement Begins

Local U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) offices have been flexing their Importer Security Filing (ISF) enforcement. This enforcement strategy allows local port-level discretion to hold cargo or issue liquidated damages/penalties against importers who do not comply with ISF filing requirements.

Enforcement actions are focused on the most egregious ISF violators, such as those with missing or significantly late ISFs. Non-compliant importers are given three warnings before CBP assesses liquidated damages. CBP will track ISF importer violations in a database that will provide visibility to local officers in an effort to identify offending importers nationwide.

To avoid cargo holds and liquidated penalties, Deringer recommends timely and accurate ISFs. Using Deringer for Customs brokerage and freight forwarding can help alleviate late filings.
