How do I make a request to have old, incorrect, or obsolete importer numbers voided?

How do I make a request to have old, incorrect, or obsolete importer numbers voided?

Email your request, including a reason for the void request, to bondquestions@cbp.dhs.gov with the subject line as Void IR#. If you are requesting a void as an Attorney-in-Fact on behalf of an importer, you will also need to provide a current Power-of-Attorney.

If you are attempting to reactivate an inactive importer record, please note that any licensed Customs broker with ABI access may accomplish this by retransmitting the data to CBP.

If you are attempting to change or otherwise update an existing importer record, please contact your local service port, a licensed Custom Broker with ABI access, or submit a completed CBP 5106 form via email to bondquestions@cbp.dhs.gov with the subject line of Update IR#.
