On 29 December, Global Trade Magazine published an article about ISF (Import Security Filing, aka as “10+2”), a documentation system that ensures all cargo passing through US ports is legal and safe. The article covers all of the details of how ISF works, what data is required, and how to submit ISF filings.  ISF only applies to cargo shipped via ocean or sea – it does not apply to cargo imported by air.  However, ISF does apply to Foreign Cargo Remaining On Board (FROB), Immediate Exportation (IE), and Transport & Exportation (T&E) shipments – but the data needed for these types of shipments differ slightly from the requirements for standard inbound cargo.
