What type of company does AEO apply to?
AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark that shows your company is efficient in meeting UK and EU standards and that your international supply chain is secure. You will already have registered for an EORI number and have defined and documented processes and procedures. It is designed for companies that are based in the UK or within the EU that trade internationally, there is no restriction based on the size or type of company that apply
Authorisation gives a company quicker access to some simplified customs procedures and, in some cases, the right to ‘fast-track’ shipments through some customs and safety and security procedures.
There are three types of status: – AEO, AEOC and AEOS
