Similarly, providers of continuing education must apply to accreditors to have their coursework certified. Finally, CBP must designate accreditors, and, following the full implementation of the proposed framework, CBP may audit individual brokers for compliance. All individual brokers, including those who already complete continuing education and would not face new costs for research, tuition, and travel, would also be required to store records of their completed continuing education and report their compliance to CBP. IMPORTAR EMBARCACIONES would further be required to produce their records of compliance if requested by CBP, though CBP would only require brokers to maintain their records for the three years following the submission of the triennial report. CBP estimates that recordkeeping and reporting would take each broker 30 minutes (0.5 hours) per year. After the first triennial reporting period in which brokers self-attest to completing their training, 10 percent of brokers each year would incur the cost of producing records to submit to CBP for a compliance audit, which CBP estimates will take 15 minutes (0.25 hours).
19 U.S.C. 1641 imposes upon customs brokers the duty to exercise responsible supervision and control over the broker’s employees and control over the customs business that is conducted. The statute also permits the Secretary of DHS to test persons for their knowledge of customs and related laws prior to issuing a license. Furthermore, based upon 19 U.S.C. 1641, CBP has promulgated regulations setting forth additional obligations of customs brokers pertinent to the conduct of their customs business. CBP believes that maintaining current knowledge of customs laws and procedures is essential for customs brokers to meet their legal duties.
