CBP Selects Four Customs Brokers to Participate in Self-Assessment Pilot Program

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has selected four customs brokers to to participate in the Broker Self-Assessment Outreach Pilot program that was announced in April 2009. CBP plans to use the pilot program to assist the agency in determining whether to formally implement the BSA program and what changes might be needed to ensure its effectiveness.

Under the BSA program pilot, participating customs brokers will update and improve internal controls, perform periodic testing of these internal controls, and disclose to CBP deficiencies discovered through the testing. The primary goal of the pilot is to ensure a high level of broker compliance with CBP laws and regulations.

The BSA pilot is based on the Importer Self-Assessment Program announced in 2002.

The four customs brokers were selected from 26 customs brokers that applied. CBP did not announce the names of the customs brokers selected.


Does anyone know who they are??

No, the four participants were not named. You can read the announcement on CBP's website.

OHL (which includes Barthco) issued a press release announcing that it has been selected as one of the four companies selected. See
