For the past year and half, we have been advising our customers of the need to submit complete and timely ISF information.
We offered training, actually trained and continue training new growers and importers on how to comply with this new rule.
As of January 23, 2011, changes to the customs system will be implemented. New codes will show customs when ISF submissions are filed late.
This new code will cause the cargo to be subject to significantly stringent security measures including examination requirements that can result in delays and extra expenses.
Please ensure growers and exporters understand the importance of complying with ISF regulations to avoid delays and costly fines.
