Explanations: 1. A Corporate Surety Power of Attorney, CBP Form 5297, must be executed for each of the following actions; grant an individual a power of attorney; change a name and/or address, and/or add districts to a power on file; revoke a power previous granted. 2. Form submission option: Each of the following conditions will require filing a copy of the CBP Form 5297: (a) if the port director permits the submission of the form to be made at any port within the district. (b) If the grantee desires to use the power of attorney at a location covered by the power, but other than the locations where the power was submitted, before CBP computer processing has been completed. For example: If both conditions are applicable, two copies of the CBP Form 5297 must be submitted with the original. 3. The box adjacent to the action executed on this CBP Form 5297 must be checked. The effective date for the action checked should be shown. (a) If grant is checked: The information required to grant a power of attorney are self-explanatory with the exception of the following: Port Information: Each port in which the power is granted must be shown except if the power both applies to all ports and the amount limit is the same in every one of those ports, enter the word "ALL" on the first line under "Port." Limit Information: (1) If any amount limit differs between any of the ports in which the power is granted, individual amount limits must be shown for each of the ports listed. (2) If all the amount limits are the same for each district in which the power is granted and the amounts equal the surety company limit published in the Treasury Department Circular 570, enter the word ""Equal" on the first line under "Limit." (3) If all of the amount limits are the same for each port in which the power is granted and the amounts are not equal to the surety company limit published in the Treasury Department Circular 570, enter the amount limit on the first line under "Limit" and enter the word "SAME" on the second line. Surety: The number required is the 3 digit identification code assigned by CBP Headquarters to a surety company, listed on Treasury Circular 570, at the time the surety company initially give notice to CBP that the company will be writing CBP bonds. (b) To change a Corporate Surety Power of Attorney already on file, the previously field power granted must be revoked and a new power (CBP 5297) must be filed EXCEPT changes to the name and/or address and the addition of districts to a power on file. (1) To make a name and/or address change, the same information that was submitted to establish the existing power on file is required except the new name and/or address must be shown in the space provided and the port code(s) and related obligation limit(s) can be left blank. (2) To add ports, the same information that was submitted to establish the existing power on file is required except only the new districts and related obligation limits are necessary in the space provided. (c) If revocation is checked: A revocation divests the designated agent's or attorney's power of attorney in all ports. Except for the following, the information required to revoke the power of attorney is self-explanatory: The ports in which authorized to do business and the associated single obligation limits do not have to be shown. Privacy Act Statement: The following notice is given pursuant to section 7(b) of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a).
