  Title: Updated Importer Security Filing (ISF) Enforcement
  Date: 6/17/2016 6:00:33 AM

For shipments that are on the water on or after June 30, 2016, CBP ports will no longer be 
required to send requests for liquidated damages (LD) claims to Headquarters for review, and the “three-strikes” approach to LD claims against importers’ bonds will also end.  There is no change to cargo holds for ISF non-compliance; ports may hold cargo instead of (or in addition to) initiating LD claims.  
If you have any questions regarding this matter, you may send them to
