ISF 10+2 and ISF 5

What is ISF ?

Seal of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security featuring an eagle, shield with elements of the American flag, and the text "U.S. Department of Homeland Security" in a circular design. Whether you are an importer or Customs House Brokerage Firm, you need to start using ISF for your imports. Effective January 26 2010, it is mandatory that you perform ISF filings, and you face significant penalties of $5,000.00 per shipment or seizure for non-compliance.

ISF is operational and delivered to the e2e client base – written and delivered by the same people who were first on ABI and AES, and continue pioneering with a fully tested and approved ISF 10+2 and ISF 5 system connected to CBP.

The e2e ISF solution helps keep you in compliance, avoid delays, penalties and seizure of goods. Specifically, our ISF platform offers:

  • 24 hour 365 day access to the application
  • Intuitive system design
  • Online editing assuring that the filing is in full compliance with all editing done by CBP
  • Online status reporting
  • Accessibility by only authorized entities
  • Security at a field level
  • Access to databases based on the entity type being completed. For example, sellers would be determined from the MID file, buyer’s ship to, etc., based on authority matrices.
  • Automatic email of notifications from Customs to specific parties to keep them informed
  • Generation of ISF filing from legacy entry system
  • Integrated Web, Green Screen and EDI functionality
  • A collaborative effort by all parties is available to complete the transaction
  • Generation of billing details into legacy billing processes

ISF-10 and ISF-5 are supported in this one application.

Based on the type of entry, certain fields will become available or will be hidden from the user. (ISF-10 is for shipments that will be shipped to a consignee in the United States, while ISF-5 is for those shipments that are in transit through the United States).
