Please note U.S. Customs and Border Protection is strictly enforcing the Importer Security Filing (ISF) requirement. CBP has been implementing large penalties on missed and late filings, with fines starting at USD 5,000.00 per occurrence.
For all ocean shipments bound for the US, completed ISF templates must be provided to CVI by the origin agent no later than 48 hours prior to origin CY cutoff. ISF filing templates received late or missing information will be subject to CBP penalties. Origin agents will be responsible for penalties incurred due to late or incomplete ISF information.
Note CVI also needs to be notified in advance of instances where ISF and AMS filings do not match. Please provide timely notice so we can action and resolve without shipment delay.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any concerns.
