NCBAA Customs Committee Nov. 29 Webinar on New Broker Regulations
The NCBFAA Customs Committee will hold a special off-the-record webinar on Nov. 29, from 2-3:30 p.m. ET, to deliver essential details to members regarding the implementation of the recently announced Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Customs Broker Modernization Regulations.
The information for this webinar is based on the diligent work by the committee’s 111 Final Rule Working Group which includes more than 25 NCBFAA members who have volunteered to review the published documents from CBP. Register for the webinar here. (Register now. We are anticipating maximum attendance. If you are unable to register, we can provide you a link to the recorded webinar upon request.)
The purpose of the 111 Final Rule Working Group has been to develop guidance for our members about operational changes which may be needed. The outreach of this working group will include this webinar and tool kits, as appropriate.
Your contributions remain important! If you have any question about the Final Rule in advance of the NCBFAA webinar, please don’t hesitate to send them to and/or When sending your comments, cite the specific regulatory provision in the email subject line so we can group issues together.
On Oct. 18, CBP has published final regulations modernizing the customs broker regulations with a 60-day implementation or by Dec. 19.
Through this final rule, CBP will transition all customs brokers to a single national permit and expanding the scope of the national permit authority to allow national permit holders to conduct any type of customs business throughout the U.S. customs territory. To accomplish this, CBP will eliminate customs broker districts and district permits, which in turn removes the need for the maintenance of district offices, and district permit waivers, the agency said.
CBP is also updating, among other changes, the responsible supervision and control oversight framework, ensuring that customs business is conducted within the U.S. and requiring that a customs broker have direct communication with an importer.
In addition, CBP is increasing fees for the customs broker license application to recover some of the costs associated with the review of customs broker license applications and the necessary vetting of individuals and business entities (i.e., partnerships, associations, and corporations). CBP will also deploy a new online system, the eCBP Portal, for processing customs broker submissions and electronic payments.
Lastly, CBP also published on Oct. 18 a concurrent final rule document to eliminate all references to customs broker district permit user fees to align with the changes made in this final rule document. See this Federal Register notice here.
To help the customs broker industry with the final rule’s implementation, CBP created a dedicated webpage with information and resources regarding the changes to 19 CFR 111.
