Modernization of the Customs Brokers Examination

On September 14, 2016, CBP published a document in the Federal Register (81 FR 63149) proposing to amend title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations ("19 CFR") to modernize the customs broker's examination provisions. Specifically, CBP proposed amending the customs broker's examination provisions, which are contained in 19 CFR part 111, to permit automation of the examination. CBP proposed removing references to the "written" examination to accommodate the transition from the paper and pencil format to an electronic format. To cover the costs of administering the examination, plus the cost of automating the examination, CBP proposed to increase the fee from $200 to $390. Today CBP published another FR Notice adopting those changes as a Final Rule.
