important reminder! The United States strictly implements the isf-5 declaration, and will face high fines if it fails to declare in time
attention, freight forwarders and foreign trade friends who have goods transit through the United States, please make timely and accurate declaration! The shipping company has issued a notice that from March 15, 2019, the U.S. Customs and border protection will fully and strictly implement the isf-5 declaration (for transshipment to Mexico and Canada through U.S. ports). That is to say, it is required to record frob goods (goods calling at US ports during transit). Moreover, the ISF importer is defined as carrier / NVOCC. For not reporting on time or will face a high fine! As the definition of importer is extended to NVOCC (non vessel carrier), if the destination of your cargo is not a U.S. port, but the ship will call at a U.S. port before unloading, or if your U I will transfer the responsibility of ISF declaration to you! As for isf-5's reporting responsibility, some shipping companies have issued relevant notices on the official website: Main idea of the notice: As of March 15, 2019, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will begin to fully implement the isf-5 filing requirements for foreign goods on board. This will affect any foreign cargo that calls at US ports during transit. The importer safety declaration ("10 + 2", "ISF") rules came into effect in 2009. At that time, the importer was defined as the "carrier" and the party responsible for ISF filing. Isf-5 has never been fully implemented due to confusion over the legal language of the ruling. On April 12, 2018, CBP issued the ISF decision and final rules, which extended the definition of ISF importer to NVOCC. On November 28, 2018, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released a list of common problems in import security filing, which made it clear that NVOCC and booking agent were the parties responsible for isf-5 declaration. In the case of NVOCC, who is responsible for submitting isf-5? As isf5 documents must be filled in at the lowest level of bill of lading (applicable to HBL level) before loading, NVOCC and booking agent will be required to fill in for record. The party submitting HBL data to CBP is responsible for submitting isf5. As the originator of global customs declaration, the cumbersome us US Declaration and the high amount of fines often make customers and freight forwarders who export to the United States feel worried! It is reported that the US Customs has issued new regulations to give a new definition of ISF declaration subject, which may change the existing customs declaration mode!! As early as July 2016, the US Customs has proposed to redefine the ISF importers related to frob, ie and T & E goods, as well as goods entering FTZ / CBW. Finally, the proposal was passed in April 2018 and officially became a new clause! The new regulations are as follows: * for frob goods, the new rules define ISF importers as carrier / NVOCC. *For IE and T & E imported goods and goods to be delivered to FTZ / CBW, the new rules define that ISF importer is not only the carrier / NVOCC, but also the owner, buyer, consignee or licensed customs broker of the goods. Please note that this rule only applies to frob goods, ie and T & E goods, or goods entering the free trade zone (FTZ) or customs bonded warehouse (CBW). Frob cargo refers to the cargo that will not be unloaded at a port in the United States, but remains on board at any port in the United States. According to this change, the U.S. Customs defines the importer as the carrier or NVOCC. Importers of goods must declare isf-5 for frob goods now and in the future!
