What is a customs broker?

Customs brokers are private individuals, partnerships, associations or corporations licensed and regulated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). They represent importers and exporters in meeting federal requirements governing imports and exports. Brokers submit necessary information and appropriate payments to CBP on behalf of their clients and charge them a fee for this service. Brokers must have expertise in entry procedures, admissibility requirements, classification, valuation and the rates of duty and applicable taxes and fees for imported merchandise. There are approximately 11,000 active licensed customs brokers in the United States. Individuals must take and pass the customs broker exam before they can apply to become licensed customs brokers. (CBP)

What is this class?

Each class focuses on a specific topic to help students prepare to pass the Customs Broker Exam followed by a study assignment. Topics always include classification, value, customs brokers and entry and often include bonds, country of origin marking, warehouses, penalties, free trade agreements and drawback. We add and revise materials as CBP’s emphasis changes over the years. During the last class session, students will take an in-class exam. We do this to provide the closest thing possible to a real-life exam experience.
