London, 6th February 2009

NYK introduction to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) 10+2 Ruling (Importer Security Filing and Additional Carrier Requirements) which became effective on 26th January 2009.

The CBP ‘10+2’ regulation requires importers and ocean carriers to electronically submit additional data to CBP on vessels destined to the United States.

The ‘10’, also referred to as the Importer Security Filing (ISF-10), requires importers to transmit ten data elements 24 hours before a container is loaded onto the ocean vessel.

The ISF-10 data elements are:

 

  1. Seller,
  2. Buyer,
  3. Importer of record number / foreign trade zone applicant identification number,
  4. Consignee number(s),
  5. Manufacturer (or supplier),
  6. Ship to party,
  7. Country of origin,
  8. Commodity Harmonized Tariff Schedule number of the United States (HTSUS) number,
  9. Container stuffing location and
  10. Consolidator name and address

 

The ‘2’ requires ocean carriers to submit the ve

ssel stow plans and container status messages (CSMs) to CBP.

CBP has given importers flexibility on six of the data elements and importers should refer to the regulation for further information.

During the first 12 months after the effective date – until January 2010 - CBP will monitor the importer ISF-10 for timeliness, accuracy and completeness and will not issue any Do Not Load (DNL) or penalties based on failure to meet the 10 Plus 2 requirements alone. CBP has stated it will work with the ISF filers to help them adhere to the new requirements.

Importers will need the carrier’s bill of lading number in order to file the importer ISF10.

CBP will reconcile your ISF10 against carrier manifest records based on linkage to the carrier’s bill of lading number(s). When making bookings and providing shipping instructions to your carriers, you should coordinate these activities in a manner which will facilitate your compliance with the regulation. Please contact your NYK Sales or Customer Service representative if you have any questions regarding how NYK can assist you in meeting the requirements.

 

Foreign Retained On Board cargo (FROB)

Additionally, carriers will need to provide five additional data elements for shipments consisting entirely of foreign cargo remaining on board (FROB), intended to be transported in-bond as an immediate exportation (IE), or for transportation and exportation (T&E). The 5 additional data elements are: (1) Booking party, (2) Foreign port of unloading, (3) Place of delivery, (4) Ship to Party and (5) Commodity HTSUS number. NYK will be submitting this information to CBP and it will be necessary for shippers or importers to provide the Commodity HTSUS number at the six digit level when placing a booking with us.
