USTRANSCOM Ready to Implement Changes to ISF 10+2 Process

December 01, 2021

The USTRANSCOM Defense Personal Property Management Office (J9) has signaled to IAM they plan to implement a change that they have studied over the past year. Starting on or about 15 January, the TSP’s Tax ID number (EIN) and business address will be used to submit the Importer Security Filing (ISF) 10+2 as the shipper. The current process lists the DoD customer’s information (which included the SSN) as the shipper. DoD has been working with Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) to remove the member’s SSN from as much documentation as possible.  For now, this change will only impact international Code of Service (COS) 4 shipments.  USTC continues to study ways to remove the member’s SSN from other types of shipments, but to date there is no movement outside of the COS 4 shipments.

 

For those TSPs who use Pasha or Govlog to submit the ISF 10+2, those companies are preparing for this change.  If you are an independent filer, and do the 10+2 filing on your own, you’ll need to be prepared to make this switch by 15 January 2022.
