Program Overview

On October 18, 2022 Customs and Border Protection released the long-awaited changes to the Customs Broker Regulations.  These changes will have a significant impact on how licensed customs brokers organize their business relationships with U.S. Customs, importers and Freight Forwarders. The new rules are effective December 19, 2022.  This includes the new requirement that brokers must execute a power of attorney (POA) directly with the importer or drawback claimant, without going through a third-party intermediary such as a freight forwarder.  As of December 19th, for a broker to transaction customs business on behalf of an importer, the POA must be executed directly between the client and the broker.  Existing POAs authorized by a Forwarder or other party on behalf of an importer will no longer be valid for the purpose of transacting “Customs Business.”   To meet the December 19th deadline, brokers will need to start immediately to request new POAs and validate them with the importer before the deadline. Join LLUSCBA and Customs Attorney George Tuttle as he reviews and answers your questions on the new Customs Broker Modernization Regulations.
