Non-compliance occurs when a customs broker fails to immediately provide the chief officer of customs with written notification of any changes in the ownership of the business or corporation.
Prior to issuing an AMPS penalty, CBSA officers should verify the following information:
- Contact the chief officer of customs office where the broker is licensed, in order to confirm if the broker immediately supplied written notification of any changes in the ownership of the business or corporation.
- Contact Brokers Licensing Unit, in Headquarters, to confirm if the required written notification of change was provided.
Apply a penalty per change in the ownership of the business or corporation.
