QuestaWeb, Inc., a vendor of software for global trade management, has released a Web-based module, which is intended to help importers cope with the new Importer Security Filing (ISF) regulation of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Also known as the 10+2 rule, the new measure calls for additional details of a shipment to be included in importer and carrier filings as of Jan. 26. QuestaWeb's 10+2 (ISF) module aids in information gathering and data submission, supporting use in either manual or automated modes, according to the company. Built-in communication capabilities help to maintain bidirectional information flow, to keep pace with changes in worldwide trade conditions. The tool allows companies to build ISFs automatically from purchase orders and commercial invoices. The module electronically ties final entry data back to the ISF filing for recall as needed. According to QuestaWeb, 10+2 (ISF) eliminates transaction fees for both the filing and amending of ISFs. The software deploys behind a firm's firewall and operates in a Web environment, the vendor said.
