ISF 10+2
The Delco Group, Ltd is in full compliance with US Customs Importer Security Filing requirements, also called 10+2 or ISF10, and we have guided many of our clients through these regulations. On January 26, 2010 US Customs & Border Protection no longer is giving leniency under their "flexible enforcement period" and fines can range up to $5,000.00 per violation for an inaccurate, incomplete or untimely filing. Vessel operators can face similar penalties for accepting any containers on their vessels that do not have the proper ISF confirmation code from US Customs and will delay shipments before subjecting themselves to potential penalties. Our ISF filings are done through US Customs AMS system at the foreign origin which benefits our clients in that the collection of data, submission of data and receipt of ISF confirmation are all done at the earliest possible time which often can be the difference between getting freight on the intended vessel or a vessel operator rolling a shipment. Our expertise with this governmental regulation allows this to be a seamless step that our clients can trust we are taking on their behalf with no extra work required by our clients.
