Classification Category
The Classification category of validation will be applied to EACH line on an entry summary.
The validations will evaluate relationships of Line Item data elements
HTS#, Country (O & E), and Special Program Claim
(and HTS# to Entry Type & Value of Goods)
for compliance with import regulation.

Document Image System Pilot
DIS reduces paperwork costs and allows for faster, more efficient cargo review and
release by CBP and PGAs.
Submitted documents are made available for review by CBP and Partner Government
Agencies (PGAs) via the DIS application.
On July 23, 2013, Federal Register Notice was published on pilot expansion.
DIS Document Transmission Mechanisms
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) - The preferred mechanism of document
transmission in DIS is via an XML payload transmitted to CBP via any one of three
EDI technical mechanisms:
1. Secure FTP,
2. Secure Web Services, or
3. Existing ABI MQ mechanism
Note: EDI is of greater value in a fully automated scenario for technically advanced, high volume trade
partners since it is supported by a modern, robust, guaranteed delivery and processing infrastructure
Email - DIS allows certain documents to be transmitted via Email to support Export
Manifest and Simplified Entry.
• Only certain pre-approved documents can be submitted as
attachments on emails
• Associated meta data is sent in Subject line and Body of email
Note: Email is more suitable in scenarios that are ‘Quick-Easy-And-Interim’; Semi-Automated,
and Low-Volume (total email size including all attachments may not exceed 10MB).
2013 DIS Enhancements
PGA documents added to DIS for EDI transmission:
• Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Form 0728 Permit to
Import or Transfer Etiological Agents or Vectors of Human Disease
• CDC Importation Permission Letter
• CDC Permit Exemption Letter
• Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) Certificate of Duty Free
Entry
• Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) 9010-1 Exported Goods
Returning
• FSIS 9060-5 Export Certificate
• FSIS 9540-4 Importation of Inedible Meat Product
• FSIS 9540-5 Importation of Samples
NOTE: Only documents announced via a Federal Register Notice can be transmitted via EDI.
2013 DIS Enhancements
Allow the following to be submitted at time of manifest (submission of the bill
of lading):
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
APHIS Notice of Arrival 368
APHIS Import Permit
APHIS Transit Permit
APHIS Pre-Clearance 203
Phytosanitary Certificates
Ingredients List
Commercial Invoice
Packing List
Allow SE documents to be transmitted via EDI to support SE filings
Reduced required meta-data
NOTE: Only documents announced via a Federal Register Notice can be transmitted via EDI.
Document Image System Access
PGA participants may contact ITDS for Participating Government Agency on
boarding procedures or view the procedures on the ITDS secure website.
Trade participants may contact their local Client Representatives Branch for
trade on boarding procedures for transmitting documents to DIS via EDI.
Ocean Carriers interested in participating in the DIS Export Manifest pilot
should contact Adi Abel at [email protected]
