Document Number: 2010-27106
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-10-27
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document proposes to amend Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations in title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) pertaining to the obligations of customs brokers to keep clients' information confidential.

These proposed changes are intended to update the regulation to reflect modern business practices, while protecting the confidentiality of client (importer) information.
