CBP Hosting Triennial Status Report and Fee Electronic Submission Webinar
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced earlier today the submission period for the 2018 Customs Broker Triennial Status Report and fee for all licensed customs brokers will open December 15, 2017. Every licensed broker is required to file a Status Report with CBP every three years.
This year, CBP is encouraging all brokers to submit the report electronically via Pay.gov. Pay.gov is the fastest and most convenient way to make secure electronic payments to Federal Government Agencies. Pay.gov accepts credit card, debit card and digital wallet (i.e. PayPal and Amazon Pay) payments with no additional fees for any payments. All receipts are provided electronically.
CBP is hosting a webinar on December 13 at 3:00 p.m. EST to help clarify the paperless submission process. All members are encouraged to join to ensure their submissions are properly filed.
When filing, licensed customs brokers must include an employee list, if applicable, with each status report submitted to CBP in accordance with 19 CFR 111.28(b). In addition, each individually licensed broker must state whether or not he/she still meets the applicable requirements of 19 CFR 111.11 and 111.19 and has not engaged in any conduct that could constitute grounds for suspension or revocation under section 111.53. Broker employee lists and any additional detail can be submitted as a PDF file attachment to the Pay.gov online form.
Failure to file a Triennial Status Report will result in the customs broker's license to be revoked by operation of law, without prejudice.
If you are unable to submit electronically, CBP will still accept a paper status report and payment at the port that originally delivered the license.
The deadline for submitting the 2018 Triennial Status Report and fee is February 28, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. EST.
