Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) Accreditation
The NLCCE is delighted to announce that it has joined forces with Supply Chain Academy (SCA) and Customs Insights Consulting (CICL) to offer Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) consulting and accreditation to companies engaged in international trade.
AEO is an international supply chain status awarded by Customs, following a detailed audit process, that is currently widely considered essential for post-Brexit European trade. The World Customs Organisation introduced AEO to secure and improve efficiencies in international trade and the benefits of approval include better access to simplified customs procedures and reduced documentation.
AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark indicating that your role in the international supply chain is secure and that your customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant. It gives quick access to certain simplified customs procedures and in some cases the right to ‘fast-track’ your shipments through some customs and safety and security procedures.
Terry Clear, Customs Insights Managing Director said, “With the focus on Brexit and the possible outcomes, AEO is coming to the fore and will be a definite benefit to business post Brexit.”
Bradley Rood, NLCCE Manager said, “we’re delighted to be partnering with CICL and SCA, both experts in their field, in offering AEO consulting and accreditation to our members and the wider business community. In the run-up to and post-Brexit, the ability to conduct international trade in a seamless and effective manner could lead to significant commercial benefits.”
