This certification is a statutory function as stated in Section 3(1) of the Clearing and Forwarding Regulations 2015. The awardees shall now be legitimate Clearing and Forwarding Agents across all legitimate border crossing points in the country. As she heartily Congratulated the certifed Brokers, the Deputy Commissioner General of the National Revenue Authority Mrs. Jeneba Kpaka Bangura admonished brokers to regard integrity as one key way to thrive in the industry in the face of emerging challenges.

Within this similar token, the Assistant Director of the Revenue Intelligence and Investigation Unit (RIIU) at NRA Mohamed Foday who also doubles as the Chairman of the License Committee for the Clearing and Forwarding Agencies, advised awardees to take advantage of their training as millions missed the opportunities.
