Customs Act 1901


Division 3 - Licensing of customs brokers  



If a customs broker, within 2 months before the date on which his or her broker ' s licence is due to expire, applies in writing to the Comptroller-General of Customs for the renewal of the licence, the Comptroller-General of Customs must, by writing, renew the licence unless:

(a) the Comptroller-General of Customs has given an order under paragraph 183CS(1)(d) in relation to the licence; or

(b) the customs broker is, because of section 183CK , not entitled to hold a broker ' s licence.

A renewal of a licence shall not take effect if, on or before the date on which the licence would, apart from the renewal, expire, the licence is revoked.


Where the licence held by a customs broker has been suspended, subsection (1) applies as if the licence had not been suspended, but the renewal of the licence does not have any force or effect until the licence ceases to be suspended.

(Repealed by No 52 of 2013)


Subject to this Part, a licence that has been renewed continues in force until the first licence expiry day (as defined in section 183CH ) after the day on which the licence would have expired apart from the renewal, but may be further renewed.

Additional conditions may be imposed on the licence under section 183CGA , and the conditions to which the licence is subject may be varied under subsection 183CG(7) or section 183CGB .
