Authorised Economic Operator status – what you need to know

AEO certification demonstrates that your role within the international supply chain is secure and that your customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant.

It is a globally-recognised status that is increasingly being demanded by clients, particularly in the US and China. It is also viewed as increasingly important for UK firms seeking to maintain competitiveness in European supply chains.

This one-hour webinar from the Institute of Export & International Trade (IOE&IT) covers:

  • What is AEO – including AEO-C and AEO-S
  • What are the benefits of applying for AEO
  • What sort of firms will benefit most
  • Criteria for getting AEO
  • Preparations for an AEO application

You can view a recording of the slides here.
