Customs Brokerage Operations 

Remote Compliance Assessment Project


US Customs and Border Protection remains active in their efforts to assess the compliance structure, performance and operational production of proof upon demand regarding the regulatory compliance responsibilities of the customs brokerage industry.

The office of Regulatory Audit has been busy in 2020 conducting remote record retention audit discussions with brokers to ensure their record retention practices are in alignment with CBP guidelines in section 111 and 163 of the CFR title 19.

CBP Port officials governing broker management continue to conduct remote broker outreach meeting via virtual compliance review structure due to COVID-19 and social distancing practices and limitations on travel authorizations.

CBP’s continued aggressive actions warrant Brokers to ensure that their compliance performance currently meets regulatory status in a proactive measure through an internal self-assessment performed by a contracted third party compliance industry expert.

The Alston Group has over 30 years of professional expertise in CBP regulations and compliance demonstration management and would be an excellent choice for your company to proactive participate in a pre-audit exercise prior to your upcoming CBP Brokerage outreach virtual remote inspection to be conducted by CBP in this calendar year of 2020.
