This US Customs Brokers class is an overview of the Lacey Act, specifically amendments included in the 2008 Farm Bill. The information provided is beneficial for both customs brokers and importers.

The assessments offer practice with species, constituent elements and number of PGA lines (examples are included). We provide a look at an actual document and how it translates to electronic filing using sample screens from the Automated Commercial Environment through SmartBorder®, and show detailed information on requirements for completing the electronic filing.


Once you finish this course, a printable Certificate of Completion will be available for download. The course can be completed in 2 hours or less and earns NCBFAA-registered students 2 CCS continuing education credits.

For those who are already a Certified Customs Specialist (CCS) or a Certified Export Specialist (CES) registered with the NCBFAA, provide us with your CCS/CES ID number and you will automatically get continuing education credits upon the successful completion of a qualified course.
