Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for Customs Brokers

04.02.2013
 

Following consultation with industry, Australian Customs and Border Protection (Customs) introduced a mandatory CPD scheme for licensed customs brokers from 1 July 2012. A CPD licence condition was advised recently by Customs in respect to “all” customs broker licences and includes all licences renewed with effect from 1 July 2012 and all new licences issued on or after 1 July 2012.

Customs issues licences subject to a number of mandatory conditions specified in the Act, and the CEO or his delegate may impose other conditions. Broker’s licences are issued for a period of (up to) three years and are renewed on payment of the prescribed fee.

The Commonwealth issues licences that allow licensed customs brokers to hold themselves out as having expertise in certain fields and the CEO has the responsibility for oversight of the conduct of such licensees. It is considered appropriate that the Commonwealth should take steps to ensure that all licensed customs brokers maintain the currency of their knowledge. It is against this background that Customs are developing a scheme of Continuing Professional Development for Australia's licensed customs brokers. The requirement to undertake relevant learning and development commences in June 2013.

ALL OF HUDSONS IN-HOUSE BROKERS WILL BE SUPPORTING AND PARTICIPATING IN THIS SCHEME OVER THE COMING YEARS.
