Join us for an informative webinar on:
Continuing Education Requirements For Customs Brokers
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 
11:00 a.m. – noon CST
U.S. Customs & Border Protection published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the Federal Register on Sept. 10, 2021 regarding continuing education requirements for Customs brokers.  This publication is an update to the Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on this subject published on Oct. 28, 2020
This webinar will cover what is being proposed in the rulemaking including:
  • Change in continuing education hours requirement
  • Who doesn’t need to meet continuing education requirement
  • Eligible classes and events and hours granted for preparation of materials
  • Documenting and certifying education hours – and what happens if you don’t
  • Suspension or revocation of customs broker license for failure to meet requirements
  • Sources for continuing education hours and accreditation of providers
  • How to submit comments and suggestions to CBP
This Federal Register publication confirms that CBP is going forward with this proposal and that soon all individually licensed customs brokers will need to meet this requirement
