111.75 Appeal from the Secretary's decision.
An appeal from the order of the Secretary of the Treasury suspending or revoking a license may be taken in accordance with the provisions of section 641(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1641(b)). The commencement of such proceedings shall, unless specifically ordered by the Court, operate as a stay of the Secretary's order of suspension or revocation.
(a) Grounds for reopening. Any person whose license has been suspended or revoked may make written application in duplicate to the hearing officer to have the order of suspension or revocation set aside or modified upon the ground of newly discovered evidence or that important evidence is now available which could not be produced at the original hearing by the exercise of due diligence. The application must set forth specifically the precise character of the evidence to be relied upon and shall state the reasons why the applicant was unable to produce it when the original charges were heard.
(b) Procedure. The hearing officer shall forward the application with his recommendation to the Secretary of the Treasury. The Secretary may grant or deny the application for reopening of the case and may order the taking of additional testimony before the hearing officer. The hearing officer shall notify the applicant of the Secretary's decision. If the Secretary grants the application and orders a hearing, the hearing officer shall set a time and place for such hearing and give due notice thereof to the applicant. The procedure governing the additional hearing and recommended decision of the hearing officer shall be the same as that governing the original proceeding.
111.77 Notice of reinstatement.
If the Secretary of the Treasury issues an order vacating or modifying the prior order of suspension or revocation, the Commissioner will notify the broker and publish a notice of the new order in the Federal Register and the Customs Bulletin.
If a broker fails to observe and fulfill the duties and responsibilities of a broker as set forth in this part but such failure is not sufficiently serious to warrant initiation of suspension or revocation proceedings the Commissioner or the district director, with the approval of the Commissioner, may serve the broker with a written reprimand. Such reprimand and the facts on which it is based, may be considered in connection with any future disciplinary proceeding that may be instituted.
111.79 Employment of broker who has lost license.
Five years after the revocation or cancellation "with prejudice" of a license, the ex-broker may petition the Commissioner for authorization to accept employment with or to assist a licensed broker. Such petition shall not be approved unless the Commissioner is satisfied that the petitioner has refrained from all activities in any way violative of the provisions of section 111.42 and that petitioner's conduct has been exemplary during the period of disability. The Commissioner shall also give consideration to the gravity of the misconduct which gave rise to the petitioner's disability. In any case in which such misconduct leads to pecuniary loss to the Government or to any person, the Commissioner shall also take into account whether the petitioner has made reimbursement for the losses incurred.
111.80 Saving provision.
Any proceeding for revocation or suspension of a license instituted prior to December 31, 1968, shall be governed by the provisions of 19 CFR Part 31 in force at the time the proceeding was instituted.
