The AEO concept is based on the Customs-to-Business partnership introduced by the World Customs Organisation (WCO). Traders who voluntarily meet a wide range of criteria work in close cooperation with customs authorities to assure the common objective of supply chain security and are entitled to enjoy benefits throughout the EU.
The EU established its AEO concept based on the internationally recognized standards, creating a legal basis for it in 2008 through the 'security amendments' to the "Community Customs Code" (CCC) (Regulation (EC) 648/2005) and its implementing provisions.
The program, which aims to enhance international supply chain security and to facilitate legitimate trade, is open to all supply chain actors. It covers economic operators authorized for customs simplification (AEOC), security and safety (AEOS) or a combination of the two.
On the basis of Article 39 of the Union Customs Code (UCC), the AEO status can be granted to any economic operator meeting the following common criteria.
Basic import and export customs clearance
Handling of ATA Carnet (international customs documents)
Handling of EUR1 Certificate, Catch Certificate and VET Certificate by some of Eimskip´s offices.
