 ISF Enforcement Strategy

Last month U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Headquarters provided updated guidance to the ports regarding ISF enforcement and the issuance of liquidated damages claims. The guidance calls for three warnings to an importer before issuing a claim for ISF noncompliance. CBP states the guidance is to clarify and enhance current ISF enforcement activity. The updated guidance is a result of CBP HQ’s review of claims since July, 2013.

CBP recently issued an addendum to the ISF FAQs to outline the enforcement strategy. To view the new addendum, please follow the link below:
