U.S. Customs maintains a list of valid FIRMS codes that must be reported as part of the U.S. import transaction. Customs makes these FIRMS codes available for query via the ABI interface. The CHB software lets you submit requests, either by entering a specific Firms Code or Facility Name and District Port code.

Note: A beginning date can be entered to narrow the query results.
