About Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)

The AEO certificate is an internationally recognised quality mark. It shows that your role in the international supply chain is secure, and that your customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant.

How will AEO benefit my business?

Accredited businesses get quicker access to certain simplified customs procedures and in some cases the right to ‘fast-track’ shipments through a number of HM Revenue & Customs safety and security procedures. Discover the implications of not being an AEO business and how this could impact on your supply chain lead times.
