Complete your AEO status application with greater ease, accuracy and confidence.
AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark. It assures your customers that your activities throughout the international supply chain are secure. It also confirms that your customs controls and procedures meet EU standards. By awarding AEO status, HMRC is now telling your customers that the safest and most cost-efficient way to move goods across international borders involves using an operator with the AEO quality mark. This is why you need to obtain accreditation. See HMRC Guidance.
Knowing you need AEO status is the easy part. Applying and securing it is more complex.
The AEO application has over 240 questions. Many are technical and detailed and require supporting documentation. If you fail to answer any of these to HMRC's precise requirements your application may be rejected. Fortunately SafeguardAEO® is here to help.
