CBP Continues Importer Security Filing Outreach

Release Date: 
April 23, 2010

Washington - U.S. Customs and Border Protection will begin another round of outreach to help the trade community understand how to comply with the Importer Security Filing and Additional Carrier requirements, commonly known as "10+2," that went into effect January 26, 2010. CBP will be hosting a series of webinars in the next month specifically focusing on the needs of small to medium-sized companies importing into the United States.

"CBP is committed to working with the trade community to enable successful compliance with ISF," said Kimberly Marsho, director of Trade Relations. "The Importer Security Filing allows CBP to make earlier and more informed targeting decisions prior to cargo arriving in the U.S. which is an important layer in CBP's efforts to secure the border."

The one-hour webinars are primarily geared towards small and medium-sized importers who have limited familiarity with the Importer Security Filing and Additional Carrier Requirements. The program will consist of a high-level overview of the "10+2" requirements, an update on the statistics and current trends, critical information on enforcement; and will conclude with a question and answer session.
