(b) specify the place or places at which the applicant proposes to act as a customs broker; and
(c) where the application is made by a company or a partnership—specify the person or each person who, if the licence is granted, is to be its nominee; and
(ca) where the application is made by a natural person—specify the person or each person (if any) who, if the licence is granted, is to be a nominee of the applicant; and

(f) contain such other information as is prescribed.

(2) Where a person makes an application, he or she shall not propose a person as his or her nominee at a place unless, at the time the application is made, that person is eligible, or intends to take all necessary action to ensure that, if a broker’s licence is granted to the applicant, he or she will be eligible, to be a nominee of the applicant at that place.
