Is a Power of Attorney necessary for express consignment clearance?

If a consignee of import express consignments, a holder of an airway bill, and a consignor of export express consignments entrusts a Customs broker to handle the clearance formalities, a Power of Attorney shall be attached upon submission of the goods declaration, except that:

  1. a faxed Power of Attorney which replaces the original has been confirmed valid, or

  2. a long-term entrusted relationship to deliver and declare consignments on someone’s behalf has been confirmed in writing for an integrated airfreight carrier or express delivery enterprise with Customs broker’s license.

Customs brokers may apply to Customs for the exemption of submitting the Power of Attorney on a case-by-case basis. However, the Powers of Attorney have to be numbered, compiled, and kept by Customs brokers for six months for Customs check upon request. If the express consignments are involved with the case of false declaration, and the Customs brokers are unable to prove to Customs that they have been entrusted to file Customs declaration, the Customs brokers will be liable for such false declaration.
