WAC 480-12-375

Bond required—Broker—Forwarder.

(1) Each intrastate broker or forwarder and each interstate broker or forwarder shall file with the commission, and keep in effect, a surety bond, or deposit satisfactory security in the amount of ten thousand dollars conditioned upon such broker or forwarder making compensation to shippers, consignees and carriers for all moneys belonging to them and coming into the broker's or forwarder's possession in connection with such transportation service.
(2) It is unlawful for an interstate broker or forwarder to conduct business as such in this state without first securing appropriate authority from the Interstate Commerce Commission, if such authority is required, and registering with the Washington utilities and transportation commission. The commission shall grant such registration without hearing upon filing a uniform application for registration of operating authority issued by the ICC and payment of a one-time registration fee of twenty-five dollars.
(3) Failure to file such bond or deposit such security is sufficient cause for refusal of the commission to grant the application for a permit or registration. Failure to maintain the bond or the deposit of security is sufficient cause for cancellation of a permit or registration.
(4) For the purposes of this section, "intrastate broker or forwarder" means a person who provides brokering or forwarding services for the transportation of property in intrastate commerce. "Interstate broker or forwarder" means a person who provides brokering or forwarding services for the transportation of property in interstate commerce when such person, its employees, or agents are physically present in the state.
