The importer will need to supply US Customs the below 10 items:

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) number, Employer Identification Number (EIN), Social Security Number (SSN), or CBP (Customs Border and Protection) assigned number of the entity liable for payment of all duties and responsible for meeting all statutory and regulatory requirements incurred as a result of importation.  The importer of record number for Importer Security Filing purposes is the same as “importer number” on CBP Form 3461.  For goods intended to be delivered to an FTZ, the IRS number, EIN, SSN, or CBP assigned number of the party filing the FTZ documentation with CBP must be provided.

 

2) Consignee Number

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) number, Employer Identification Number (EIN), Social Security Number (SSN), or CBP assigned number of the individual(s) or firm(s) in the United States on whose account the merchandise is shipped. This element is the same as the “consignee number” on CBP Form 3461.

 

3) Seller (Owner)

Name and address of the last known entity by whom the goods are sold or agreed to be sold. If the goods are to be

imported otherwise than in pursuance of a purchase, the name and address of the owner of the goods must be

provided.  The party required for this element is consistent with the information required on the invoice of imported merchandise.  See 19 CFR 141.86(a)(2).

 

4) Buyer (Owner)

Name and address of the last known entity to whom the goods are sold or agreed to be sold. If the goods are to be imported otherwise than in pursuance of a purchase, the name and address of the owner of the goods must be provided.  The party required for this element is consistent with the information required on the invoice of imported merchandise.  See 19 CFR 141.86(a)(2).

 

5) Ship To Party

Name and address of the first deliver-to party scheduled to physically receive the goods after the goods have been

released from customs custody.  CBP is looking for the actual deliver to name/address; not the corporate address.

If unknown, provide the name of the facility where the goods will be unladen.  May provide a FIRMS code of a warehouse or terminal if the specific ship to name/address is unknown at the time of the filing. For example, a container freight station is acceptable.  May provide the name and address of an in-land distribution center if the specific ship to name/address is unknown at the time of the ISF filing.

 

6) Manufacturer or Supplier

1. Name and address of the entity that last manufactures, assembles, produces, or grows the commodity

2. Or, name and address of the supplier of the finished goods in the country from which the goods are leaving.

3. In the alternative, the name and address of the manufacturer (or supplier) that is currently required by the import laws, rules and regulations of the United States (i.e., entry procedures) may be provided (this is the information that is used to create the existing manufacturer identification (MID) number for entry purposes).

 

7) Country of Origin

Country of manufacture, production, or growth of the article, based upon the import laws, rules and regulations of the

United States. This element is the same as the “country of origin” on CBP Form 3461.

 

8) Commodity HTS-6 Number

Duty/statistical reporting number under which the article is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United

States (HTSUS). The HTSUS number must be provided to the six-digit level.

In the alternative, the filer may choose to provide the HTSUS number to the 10-digit level.

 

9) Container Stuffing Location

Name and address(es) of the physical location(s) where the goods were stuffed into the container. For break bulk shipments, the name and address(es) of the physical location(s) where the goods were made “ship ready” must be provided.  The “scheduled” stuffing location may be provided.  This may be the same name/address as the manufacturer (supplier) If a “factory load”, simply provide the name and address of the factory

 

10) Consolidator (Stuffer) Name/Address

Name and address of the party who stuffed the container or arranged for the stuffing of the container. For break bulk

shipments, the name and address of the party who made the goods “ship ready” or the party who arranged for the goods to be made “ship ready” must be provided. If no consolidator is used, e.g. “factory load” shipments, provide the

name/address of the manufacturer (supplier).
