U.S. Customs and Border Protection has discontinued effective from Sept. 21 a test originally announced in April 2013 that allowed customs brokers to pre-certify importers for participation in the Importer Self-Assessment program. The Customs Broker Importer Self-Assessment Pre-Certification (Broker ISA PC) test was intended to leverage customs brokers’ relationships with importers to facilitate and promote importer participation in the ISA program. However, CBP has determined that it is not effective to continue with the test in light of “minimal importer participation” and, as a result, the agency will not move forward with a permanent Broker ISA PC program.
