Any Customs Broker or third party who is submitting the information on your behalf is only obligated to convey this information to Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

PRIVACY ACT STATEMENT: Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 552a(e)(3), this Privacy Act Statement serves to inform you of why DHS is requesting the information on this form.

AUTHORITY: The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is authorized to collect the information requested on this form pursuant to Title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR §24.5 Filing Identification Number and 149.3 Data Elements).

INSTRUCTIONS

TYPE OF ACTION

Notification of Identification Number - Check this box if this is your first request for services with CBP, or if your current Importer Number is inactive and you wish to activate this number.

Change Name - Check this box if the Importer Number is on file but there is a change in the name.

Change of Address - Check this box if the Importer Number is on file but there is a change in the address.

For updates involving changes to an existing IOR other than a “Change of Name” and “Change of Address”, the “TYPE OF ACTION” should be left blank.

NOTE - If a “Change of Address” and/or “Change of Name” is requested for an importer or other party that has an active bond on file with CBP, then a name and/or address rider must accompany this change document, unless the rider is otherwise not required for the bond pursuant to a CBP test announced in the Federal Register, such as CBP's eBond Test Program, or otherwise not required by CBP's regulations.

SECTION 1 - NAME AND IDENTIFICATION NUMBER

1A - Importer/Business/Private Name - Please indicate the name of the company or individual who will be importing or seeking service or payment. If you are submitting this document as a consignee to the import transaction, sections 1 and 2 must be filled out completely.

1B - IRS/SSN - Complete this block if you are assigned an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employer identification number or Social Security Number (SSN). If neither an IRS employer identification number nor a Social Security Number (SSN) has been assigned, the word “NONE” shall be written in 1B. The SSN should belong to the principal or owner of the company.

1C - DIV/AKA/DBA - Complete this block if an importer is a division of another company (DIV), is also known under another name (AKA), or conducts business under another name (DBA).

1D - Complete this block only if Block 1C is used.

1E - Request CBP-Assigned Number - Complete this block if you have neither an IRS employer identification number nor a SSN and you require a CBP-assigned number, or, you choose to use a CBP-assigned number in lieu of your SSN. If you have an IRS employer identification number at the time you submit this form that number will automatically become your importer identification number and no CBP-assigned number will be issued.

PLEASE NOTE: A CBP-assigned number is for CBP use only and does not replace listing a SSN or IRS employer identification number on this form. If you have elected to request a CBP-Assigned Number in lieu of your SSN, you must provide your “Company Position Title”, name, and SSN in Block

3J of this form. If you have elected to request a CBP Assigned Number in lieu of your SSN, you must provide your SSN in section 3J of this form. In general, a CBP- assigned number will be issued to foreign businesses or individuals, provided no IRS employer identification number or SSN exists for the requester. A requester can choose to keep using the CBP-assigned number even if the individual subsequently acquires a SSN. If block 1E is completed, CBP will issue an assigned number and inform the requester. This identification number will be used for all future CBP transactions when an identification number is required. If an IRS employer identification number, a Social Security Number, or both, are obtained after an identification number has been assigned by CBP, a new CBP Form 5106 form shall not be filed unless requested by CBP.

1F - CBP-Assigned Number - Complete this block if you have already been assigned a CBP-Assigned Number, and there is a requested change in Block "Type of Action".

1G - Type of Company- Please select the description that accurately describes your company. A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is not a corporation; it is a legal form of company that provides limited liability to its owners.

1H - Provide an estimate of the number of entries that will be imported into the U.S. in one year, if you are an importer of record.

1I - Check the boxes which will indicate how the name and identification number will be utilized.
