Houston Importers will be required to transmit all ten of the previously proposed data elements. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will be allowing one-year for compliance. As of January 26, 2009, importers must begin 10+2 filing. Fortunately, penalties for non-compliance will not be issued until a structured review of compliance difficulties is completed. Once 10+2 is in effect, each ISF violation will result in a $5000 penaltly. As a result, even minor mistakes could prove very costly for Houston importers.
