Brokers must fulfill the requirements in the regulations; the conditions as to document submission and payments to the broker may be spelled out in an agreement between the parties, but it is important to have regulatory requirements that bind parties. Lastly, commenters stated that the term “communications” in proposed factors and (communications between the broker and its officer) is too broad.

Brokers already compile this information through their normal course of business, and they can report the information to CBP in any format they choose. CBP assumes data breaches are rare but includes this requirement as a preventive measure. CBP assumes this provision has virtually no cost to the brokers due to the infrequency of data breaches. CBP will use this information in its targeting of imports for inspection, which will help make imports safer. As a result of this rule, the options above pertaining to district permits will no longer exist and all permitted brokers will have to get a single national permit to conduct customs business. That means that brokers will pay the $100 permit application fee and receive a single national permit; brokers who, absent this rule, paid to hold multiple district permits will save the $100 district permit fee for each additional permit.
Our licensed customs brokers understand that import regulations and tariff rates are seemingly changing on a daily basis. We save time and reduce delays by interfacing electronically with customs to offer remote location filings for any port. Each broker must provide notification to the CBP Office of Information Technology Security Operations Center of any known breach of electronic or physical records relating to the broker’s customs business. Notification must be electronically provided ( ) within 72 hours of the discovery of the breach, including any known compromised importer identification numbers ( see19 CFR 24.5). Within ten business days of the notification, a broker must electronically provide an updated list of any additional known compromised importer identification numbers.
Communications between the broker and its officer or member, and the broker’s responsiveness and action to communications and direction from its officer or member. Additional inquiry.The appropriate Executive Director, Office of Trade, may require further inquiry if additional facts are deemed necessary to evaluate the application. The appropriate Executive Director, Office of Trade, may also require the applicant to appear in person or by another approved method before the appropriate Executive Director, Office of Trade, or his or her representatives, for the purpose of undergoing further written or oral inquiry. The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement and Fairness Act of 1996, requires agencies to assess the impact of regulations on small entities.
