Are you ready to file a request for AEO certification?
Introducing Deloitte's AEO-Digiscan tool
Under European Customs law, companies can apply to be certified as Authorized Economic Operators (AEO). The aim of AEO is to have customs authorities and certified businesses jointly responsible for safe and secure cross-border transactions. As an AEO-certified company you will be recognized as being compliant and trustworthy in customs transactions.
In providing these guidelines, the European Commission has tried to create common views and a clear application of the new legislation concerning AEOs. The guidelines include questionnaires that focus on assisting both customs authorities and the business world with determining if the criteria are met. Companies have a choice among three certificates depending on their role in the supply a chain: a customs certificate, a safety certificate or a combination of both.
Is your company prepared to file a request for certification? Deloitte’s AEO-Digiscan can help you find the answer.
