CBP Implements Changes to 10+2 Processing

On July 12, 2009, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) implemented a number of changes to the processing of the Importer Security Filing (ISF), also known as 10+2.  Accordingly, the transaction sets on the Security Filing page were updated to reflect these changes. 

CBP issued a reminder that beginning August 15, 2009, the following data edits in ISF were switched from "ISF ACCEPTED WITH WARNINGS" to "ISF REJECTED:" 

1. Edit for missing Importer of Record
      a.  CATAIR / CAMIR - Error Code 302, Error Message 'Importer Required"
      b.  X.12 - Error Message "485 NM1 Missing Importer"

2. Edit for incorrect Action Reason Code
      a.  CATAIR / CAMIR - Error Code 132, Error Message "Invalid Action Reason Code"
      b.  X.12 - Error Message "470 M1016 Invalid Value"

On August 12, 2009 CBP added an additional data element to the list of fatal errors. Effective August 15, 2009, reporting a party using an identification number (IRS number or Social Security Number) that is not currently on file with CBP will be rejected.
