U.S. CUSTOMS: Importer Security Filing (ISF) 5 Delayed Enforcement Period Ending March 15, 2019

Last week, U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) issued an update regarding the enforcement of ISF-5 via the Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS). The update states the following:

"CBP is ending its delayed enforcement period for ISF-5 violations and will begin issuing liquidated damages claims for violations of the ISF-5 requirements on March 15, 2019. Please ensure that you are in compliance before that time."
