Heads up for ISF

Regarding the "10+2" rule for the United States (Import Security Filing/ISF)

Import Security Filing (ISF) is mandatory under the security rules of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Failure to comply or incomplete applications may result in actions such as a hold on loading, refusal of discharge, seizure of cargo, and the imposition of fines ($5,000 per violation). Filing ISF is the importer's responsibility.
