On February 18, 2021, in Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) #46291452, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that the April 21, 2021 Customs Broker License Examination will include a remote proctored exam delivery option for a limited number of examinees.

The exam location must meet certain conditions and requirements, and CBP will conduct a diagnostic test prior to registration. CBP defines remote proctoring to mean, “A person (the proctor) will observe the examinee via the computer camera throughout the exam, from sign-in through completion.” This option will be offered on a first come, first served basis until full. In-person exams will also be available.

Registration for the April 21, 2021 exam opens on February 22, 2021 and closes on March 22, 2021.
