Broker Compliance

Customs Brokers are subject to extensive regulation, and may face potential fines, penalties, and loss of licensure for failure to comply with such requirements.

We assist brokers in maintaining compliance, and in obtaining valid individual and corporate Customs licenses and permits.

In the wake of September 11th, Customs agents have been hard pressed with the tasks of investigation; Customs therefore expects that applications for corporate licenses may face additional delays in processing due to the need for background checks by Customs agents.  Previously, corporate application had faced delays of approximately 4 months to 2 years depending on the port. 

We are advising clients to make certain that applications are entirely complete and contain a complete description of the steps and procedures the company is taking to maintain compliance.  Such descriptions in the application serve to anticipate concerns of Customs agents and compliance personnel, and thereby prevent the application from being pulled back to address such questions.
