It isn’t mandatory, but it gives quicker access to certain simplified customs procedures and in some cases the right to ‘fast-track’ your shipments through some safety and security procedures. AEO will provide customs with the confidence they need to grant authorisations for specific regimes such as inward processing (IP) and warehousing, potentially reduce guarantees.

This full day workshop will review the standards for both aspects, customs and security. This is not for the faint-hearted and anyone looking into the AEO standards criteria will recognise that this is a major project involving many key personnel in the business.

This is part of our customs workshop series, designed to help importers and exporters navigate customs procedures effectively. Each session will focus on specific customs procedures to help ensure you’re businesses is benefiting from them, maintain effective and compliant in-house processes, and minimise potential Duty/VAT liabilities.

Following the introduction of the Union Customs Code in May 2016, there are planned changes to import, export and storage procedures. This will affect any business seeking authorisation for customs regimes, and will lead to more scrutiny of valuations, tariff codes and origins.
