This section also provides that an examination may be conducted to assess an applicant’s qualifications for a license. PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38221 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 and states that 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 2015 coincides with the observance of the religious holiday of Shemini Atzeret. In consideration of this conflict, CBP has decided to change the regularly scheduled date of the examination. This document announces that CBP has scheduled the October 2015 broker license examination for Wednesday, October 7, 2015. Dated: June 29, 2015. Brenda B.
