Type: Notice
Date: 2018-09-21
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
On April 17, 2013, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a test allowing customs brokers to pre-certify importers for participation in the Importer Self-Assessment (ISA) program. The Customs Broker Importer Self-Assessment Pre-Certification (Broker ISA PC) test was intended to leverage customs brokers' relationships with importers to facilitate and promote importer participation in the ISA program. Unfortunately, there was minimal importer participation in the test; thus, CBP has determined that it is not effective to continue with the Broker ISA PC test. This notice announces CBP's intention to discontinue the test and not to move forward with a permanent Broker ISA PC program.
