Appealing the CBLE?

Congratulations to those applicants who have passed the October 2021 CBLE (Customs Broker License Exam). The exam is very challenging with typical pass rates in the 10-15% range, although the October rate has not yet been posted. If you came up short consider taking it again in April 2022 now that you have some testing experience. You also have the option of appealing your answers to specific questions. Here is some info from the CBP website about how to appeal. Check the link for details.
