Hundreds of Customs Broker Licenses Revoked for Failure to File Triennial Report
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has published a list of hundreds of customs broker licenses that have been revoked by operation of law without prejudice for failure to file a triennial status report. See the attached list for details.
Under 19 CFR 111.30 each broker must file a written status report every three years with the CBP port through which its license was issued. This report must state whether the broker is actively engaged in transacting business as a broker and, if so, must include (a) the name and address under which such business is conducted if the broker is the sole proprietor, (b) the name and address of the individual’s employer, if employed by another broker (unless that broker is a partnership, association or corporation broker for which the individual is a qualifying member or officer), and (c) whether or not the individual still meets the applicable regulatory requirements and has not engaged in any conduct that could constitute grounds for license suspension or revocation. Each corporation, partnership or association broker must state the name under which its business as a broker is being transacted, its business address, the name and address of each licensed member of the partnership or licensed officer of the association or corporation who qualifies it for a license, and whether it is actively engaged in transacting business as a broker.
