Authorised Economic Operator Scheme

If you’re involved in the international supply chain and currently carry out customs-related activities throughout the European Union, you might want to consider applying for AEO (Authorised Economic Operator) status, no matter what size of business you operate.

Depending on the type of certificate you apply for, benefits can include easier access to certain customs simplifications or facilitations from safety controls and customs security. There are numerous AEO certificates that you might want to start researching, so you know you’re applying for the one that will suit your business best – although a UK business consultancy firm can help you with this and offer you advice on which may be most appropriate for you and your brand.
