Glossary of International Business : 10 PLUS Rule - 10+RULE

The Importer Security Filling and Additional Carrier Requirements Rule : but better known as the 10+2 rule

A proposed new U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP) rule that requires importers of ocean cargo or their authorized agents to supply CBP with an Importer Security Filing of 10 additional data elements and ocean carriers to supply an additional 2 data elements…. therefore the 10+2 rule ( 10 PLUS Rule ).

These data elements must be presented to CBP a minimum of 24 hours prior to vessel loading in the foreign port and must be filed electronically using the automated Broker Interface (ABI).

The rule is expected to go into effect by January 2009 but will be phased in over eight to twelve months. ( 10 PLUS Rule )

The Importer Security Filing contains the following 10 data elements - 10 PLUS Rule

1. Manufacturer (or supplier) name and address

2. Seller (or owner) name and address

3. Buyer (or owner) name and address

4. Ship-to name and address

5. Container stuffing location

6. Consolidator (stuff) name and address

7. Importer of record number/ foreign trade zone applicant identification number

8. Consignee number(s)

9. Country of origin

10. Commodity Harmonized Tariff Schedule number

The Additional Carrier Requirements contain the following 2 data elements.

1. A vessel stow plan used to transmit information about the physical location of cargo loaded aboard the vessel bound for the U.S.

2. Container status messages, which report container movements and changes in status (e.g., empty or full)

This new rule is another step in the Department of Home land Security’s (DHS) strategy to better assess and identify high-risk shipments to prevent terrorist weapons and materials from entering the United States.

The intention of the rule is to improve CBP’s ability to target high – risk cargo by identifying actual cargo movements and improving the accuracy of cargo descriptions. It will also improve CBP’s ability to facilitate lawful international trade by identifying low-risk shipments much earlier in the supply chain.

CBP has implemented a comprehensive, multi-layered cargo security strategy designed to enhance national security. These efforts include the 24-hour Manifest Rule, Container Security Initiative, Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), Non-Intrusive Inspection Techniques, Automated Targeting System, the Secure Freight initiative and the National Targeting Center.

Currently, CBP relies primarily on carrier manifest information to perform advance targeting prior to vessel loading. Internal and external reviews have concluded that more complete advance shipment data would produce more accurate and effective cargo risk assessments. This way resources can be focused on true threats and legitimate cargo can speed through the system as quickly as possible.
