CBP has changed the dates on which the semi-annual examination for an individual customs broker’s license will be held in April and October 2020, with the new dates being April 1 and Oct. 8.

The broker license exam consists of 80 multiple-choice questions and a score of 75 percent is required to pass. Exam topics typically include entry, classification, trade agreements, valuation, broker compliance, power of attorney, marking, drawback, bonds, foreign-trade zones, warehouse entries, intellectual property rights, fines, penalties, and forfeitures, and other subjects pertinent to a broker’s duties.
