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 brokers' 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. Section 111.11 of 
the CBP regulations (19 CFR 111.11) sets forth the basic requirements 
for a broker's license, and in paragraph (a)(4) of that section 
provides that an applicant for an individual broker's license must 
attain a passing grade (75 percent or higher) on a written examination.
    Section 111.13 of the CBP regulations (19 CFR 111.13) sets forth

individual broker's license and states that written customs broker's

scheduled date of the examination. This document announces that CBP has 
scheduled the October 2019 customs broker's license examination for 
Thursday, October 17, 2019.
