Meade, MD 20755– 5235, 301–677–7085 —————— * The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) voted to end its Laboratory Accreditation Program for Substance Abuse (LAPSA) effective May 12, 1998. Laboratories certified through that program were accredited to conduct forensic urine drug testing as required by U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. As of that date, the certification of those accredited Canadian laboratories will continue under DOT authority. The responsibility for conducting quarterly performance testing plus periodic on-site inspections of those LAPSA-accredited laboratories was transferred to the U.S. HHS, with the HHS’ NLCP contractor continuing to have an active role in the performance testing and laboratory inspection processes. Other Canadian laboratories wishing to be considered for the NLCP may apply directly to the NLCP contractor just as U.S. laboratories do. Upon finding a Canadian laboratory to be qualified, HHS will recommend that DOT certify the laboratory (Federal Register, July 16, 1996) as meeting the minimum standards of the Mandatory Guidelines published in the Federal Register on April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22809). After receiving DOT certification, the laboratory will be included in the monthly list of HHScertified laboratories and participate in the NLCP certification maintenance program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Section 641 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1641), 
provides that a person (an individual, corporation, association, or 
partnership) must hold a valid customs broker's license and permit in 
order to transact customs business on behalf of others, sets forth 
standards for the issuance of broker's licenses and permits, and 
provides for the taking of disciplinary action against brokers that 
have engaged in specified types of infractions. This section also 
provides that an examination may be conducted to assess an applicant's 
qualifications for a license.
    The regulations issued under the authority of section 641 are set 
forth in Title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 111 (19 CFR 
111). Part 111 sets forth the regulations regarding the licensing of, 
and granting of permits to, persons desiring to transact customs 
business as customs brokers. These regulations also include the 
qualifications required of applicants and the procedures for applying 
for licenses and permits. 19 CFR 111.11 sets forth the basic 
requirements for a broker's license and, 19 CFR 111.11(a)(4), provides 
that an applicant for an individual broker's license must attain a 
passing grade (75 percent or higher) on a written examination.
    19 CFR 111.13 sets forth the requirements and procedures for the 
written examination for an individual broker's license. The written 
customs broker license examinations will be given on the first Monday 
in April and October unless the regularly scheduled examination date 
conflicts with a national holiday, religious observance, or other 
foreseeable event.
    CBP recognizes that the first Monday in October 2012 coincides with 
the observance of the religious holiday, Sukkot. In consideration of

examination. This document announces that CBP has scheduled the October 
2012 broker license examination to be held on Wednesday, October 3, 
2012.
