NEWS New nominee broker licence application pack

The updated application pack includes forms and guidelines to help you apply for a nominee customs broker licence.

The Department is currently enhancing the customs broker licensing process. We have focused first on nominee broker licences.

New Guidelines for completing a nominee customs broker licence applications are now available which explain the process, and highlight the most important aspects of what is involved for the applicant. These include helping individuals self-assess their readiness before applying; and guidance on how to prepare a strong application.

A new referee guideline is included, to help referees provide more effective references which clearly describe the applicant’s knowledge and experience.

Also included in the application pack are a revised application form, general consent form and statutory declaration form. The introduction of a statutory declaration means that in most cases we no longer require copies of supporting documents to be certified.

New Nominee customs broker licence applications must be completed and submitted in accordance with the new application pack from 1 July 2017.

We will continue our efforts in this area, and have commenced similar work on the application packs for corporate and sole trader broker licensing.

Licence application packs are located at the Application Process page.
