    October 2006 Test Q. 36

    19 CFR § 111.1 “District” means the geographic area covered by a customs broker permit other than a national permit. A listing of each district, and the ports thereunder, will be published periodically.

    “Permit” means any permit issued to a broker under § 111.19.
    § 111.19 Permits.
    (b) Submission of application for initial or additional district permit. A broker who intends to conduct customs business at a port within another district for which he does not have a permit, …, must submit an application for a permit in a letter to the director of the port at which he intends to conduct customs business.

    Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States – STATISTICAL ANNEXES
    Annex C — Schedule D, Customs District and Port Codes
    Schedule D provides a list of U.S. Customs districts, the ports included under each district, and the corresponding numeric codes used in compiling the U.S. foreign trade statistics.
    34. PEMBINA, NORTH DAKOTA

    23. Warroad, MN

    The port of Warroad, MN is included under the U.S. Customs district of Pembina, North Dakota. Therefore, if the customs broker has a permit for Pembina District, the port of Warroad, MN is included under that district and so is part of the geographic area covered by his customs broker permit. Therefore he may enter merchandise in Warroad, Minnesota and does not need any an additional permit or waiver etc. Therefore answer choice E is correct.

    Thank you. I was looking only in 101.3 and not in the statistical annexes. Now I know to go to the statistical annex and search by a district name.
