IMPORTER SECURITY FILING

(10+2)


U.S. Customs
Requirements and Expectations

Overview

Customs has come out with a new security initiative that went into effect today, called “
10 + 2”
.
This is an effort to help prevent terrorist weapons from being transported to the U.S., giving
custom’s information
about the cargo we are transporting, prior to the vessel arriving at our ports.
This looks at high risk shipments, cargo safety and security. We will require some vendor
information to make this happen.


U.S. Customs Border and Protection (CBP) implemented

the interim final rule (IFR) for Importer
Security Filing (ISF), also known as "10+2." The IFR will take effect January 26, 2009.
This
affects ocean freight only

destined to the United States. Bulk cargo is exempted from ISF
requirements.


10+2 refers to

ten (10) pieces of information required to be electronically submitted to U.S.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) by the importer and two (2) pieces of information required to
be separately electronically submitted to CBP by the ocean carrier. The lowes
t level bill of lading
must also be submitted in order for CBP to link the ISF data to AMS data.


Based on the interim final rule, required commercial documents must be submitted to UPS 4
days
prior to loading cargo on vessels

destined for the U.S.


For a
dditional information on ISF requirements, please visit the following web site:
http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/trade/cargo_security/carriers/security_filing/


Importer Se
curity Filing requires 10 data elements to be submitted by Geo S Bush, as our ISF
agent
.


What this means for our shippers

There are multiple ways to provide this information, such as including on a Shipper’s Letter of
Instruction document, or ensuring the

information is contained on the commercial invoice.


Below in more detail are the pieces of information that Geo S Bush, as our ISF agent, will require
from shippers on our behalf:

Manufacturer (or supplier) name and address


this is the actual manufactu
rer of the merchandise
being shipped. (For except for textile goods, if the manufacturer isn’t known, the supplier name and
address may be provided)

Container stuffing location


this is the name and address of the location at which the container is
stuffe
d; for factory
-
loaded containers, this will be the factory location

Consolidator (stuffer) name and address


this is the party who is responsible for the stuffing of the
container; for factory
-
loaded containers, this will likely be the factory name and a
ddress; for LCL
shipments, this will be the name and address of the forwarder

Secure the required bill of lading numbers from your UPS agent during the booking process
.


If you have any questions or concerns about meeting these requirements, please contact Susie
Smith. Email to

LACEY ACT


The Lacey Act was first enacted in 1900, and is the oldest wildl
ife protection statute.

It combats
trafficking in “illegal” wildlife, fish and plants.


The
updated Lacey Act extends the protection to a
broader range of plants and plant products by requiring that importers submit a declaration at the
time of
importation for certain plants and plant products.

Importers now need to declare the
scientific name of the plant, the value of the importation, quantity of the plant and name of the
country where the plant was harvested.

A declaration is required only f
or the product itself


not
the sundries that can accompany the product (such as tags, labels, manuals or warranty cards.)

Packaging material is also exempt, unless the packaging material is the item that is being imported.


For recycled product, like pap
er or paperboard, the declaration must also include average percent of
recycled content without regard for species or country of harvest.

al, either earthen or plant derived, in its

3.

Description of the value of the importation and quantity (including the unit of measure) of
the plant/plant products.

State whether the material has been processed in any way.

6.

State that the merchandise meets all USDA and APHIS guidelines.
