Importer Security Filing Update
Despite the good-faith efforts of CBP officials, there continue to be many Importer Security Filing (ISF) related questions on the minds of the international trade community. Roanoke Trade has been extensively involved in the CBP and trade dialog on ISF via its representation in and interaction with COAC, the Customs-Surety Executive Committee, the International Trade Surety Association, the NCBFAA ISF Subcommittee, and a number of other organizations. We would like to share with you knowledge we have gained from those activities but – we wish to do so in a manner that respects your time. To achieve these twin objectives, we have prepared for you a short summary of key CBP feedback along with some brief reporting and commentary on unresolved matters of general concern. Click here to view this informative summary.
It has been over 3 years since CBP has revised the ISF FAQ document on their website and they have indicated that they are planning to release an update within the next month. We will send a notice when this release takes place. Meanwhile, the existing document contains foundational information on the ISF program and process that may be of use to your staff members. You can access this document here.
Should you have any questions, please submit them via email to Dave Jordan email@example.com so he may respond to you. Or you may contact your Roanoke Trade service office at 1-800-ROANOKE with questions you may have about ISF bonding or any other bonds or insurance matters.
