Guidelines

Non-compliance occurs when the customs broker fails to immediately provide the chief officer of customs with written notification of any changes in the membership of the partnership.

Prior to issuing a penalty, CBSA officers should verify the following information:

  • Contact the chief officer of customs where the broker is licensed, to confirm if the broker provided immediate written notification of any change in the membership of the partnership.
  • Contact Brokers Licensing Unit, in Headquarters, to confirm if the required written notification of change was provided.

Apply a penalty per change in membership of the partnership.
