Instrument Security Codes (ISC) for ACIS
ACIS customers are issued with Import Credit Numbers (ICN) which provides import credits. Additionally ACIS ICNs are issued with an Instrument Security Code (ISC) which is a 4 digit alpha-numeric number which is to be used when transferring credits in the ICS. For existing ACIS customers the ISC (or PIN) is to remain the same as was issued for use with the Customs Compile system.
