AEO - Authorised Economic Operator
A company that has AEO status is considered to be particularly reliable and trustworthy and can therefore take advantage of customs clearance benefits. Since 1 January 2008, companies established in the European Union and involved in customs activities have been able to apply for this status. The ambitious goal is to protect the entire international supply chain from the manufacturer of a product to the end consumer against terrorist attacks.
Further information can be found on the European Commission website.
Our company is classified as an AEOC certificate holder for customs simplifications.
The AEO certification can be checked on the following page:
