What is CCS?

CCS is the abbreviation for Certified Customs Specialist. The CCS program was developed by NCBFAA as a continuing education and credentialing program for professionals in the customs brokerage industry. Licensed brokers had the option of grandfathering into the CCS program at its outset in 2006, while non-licensed industry professionals were able to take a course and earn the designation by passing a test. Both groups must earn approved continuing education credits each year in order to maintain the CCS designation.
