<span-size:19.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";color:#043A51">Marine Invasive Species Fee Matters No Longer Require a Power of Attorney for Marine Agents to Act on Behalf of Owners and Operators <span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:#333333">Beginning January 1, 2022, we can disclose information regarding a vessel owner or operator’s marine invasive species fee to any marine agent acting on behalf of the vessel owner or operator. Therefore, we will no longer require an owner or operator to provide a CDTFA‑392, <span-family:"Arial",sans-serif">Power of Attorney (POA) or a CDTFA‑5226, <span-family:"Arial",sans-serif">Marine Invasive Species Fee – Agent Agreement (Agent Agreement) to authorize a marine agent to act on their behalf. This change is due to the enactment of Senate Bill 824 (Stats. 2021, ch. 432).

What does this mean for marine agents?<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:#333333">

<span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:#333333">We will send you a copy of the billing for each arrival, in which you are acting on behalf of a vessel owner or operator, based on the information we receive from the Marine Exchange.

A copy of the billing will be mailed to your agent for payment.

·       <span-size:10.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";color:#333333">We will continue to bill you directly when a marine agent is not used for processing billings.
