Can I customize the Terms and Conditions to my company?

Our Terms & Conditions are downloadable to a Word .DOC format so that you can add certain details about your Company, services or stipulations to the document.  Your company name, and the time periods that you set for claims can be added.  In that respect you define the time periods allowed for potential lawsuits / claims.  Otherwise, it should remain as written and as approved by our legal counsel unless you have obtained counsel confirming that any additional or modified language does not alter the legal sufficiency of the T&Cs.

Dues FAQs

What is the Legal Defense Fund contribution that appears on my company dues renewal?

The Legal Defense Fund was created after NCBFAA was called upon to file an amicus brief. The Fund is financed in whole by the NCBFAA’s Regular members and is only used for cases or causes brought to the Association’s attention by its members.

The fund is not meant to be used to settle individual legal disputes among our members; rather it is meant for legal issues that may affect our entire industry.  Examples of this would be courts attempting to hold brokers liable for asbestos and agent orange imported decades ago, or fireworks legally imported but then mishandled and ultimately causing harm to children. We never want to see our industry held liable to the product safety of what we help our clients legally import under the rules in place at the time of importation.

All decisions to participate on behalf of a member, and issue, rests with a committee comprised of the officers of the Association (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Chairperson of the Board), the chairpersons of the Customs Committee and Freight Forwarding Committees, and a board member who may have a particular insight into the issue at hand, selected by the Association President on a case-by-case basis.


When does my company membership renew?

Our dues run on a calendar year basis, from January 1st to December 31st each year.  We generally send out dues renewals beginning in mid-November.


What are the membership dues based upon?

Dues are based upon the number of your employees whose roles are directly related to customs brokerage / compliance.  Here is the official definition / parameters: 

*Your employee count should include those engaged in activities directly relating to customs brokerage/compliance, drawback, international or domestic freight forwarding, salespersons and/or NVOCC operations including supervisors. Warehouse workers, truck drivers, couriers, printer operators, temporary labor and other business support positions such as accounting, human resources, IT, etc. may be excluded unless their primary duty is to support the operations named above.
