AEO Status

AEO StatusAEO status is a certified standard authorisation issued by customs administrations in the European Union (EU). It certifies that a business has met certain standards in relation to:

  • safety and security
  • systems to manage commercial records
  • compliance with customs rules
  • financial solvency
  • practical standards of competence or professional qualifications.
This is primarily a trade facilitation measure that recognises reliable operators and encourages best practice in the international supply chain. As an AEO, the benefits are:
  • recognition worldwide as safe, secure and compliant business partners in international trade
  • lower risk scores in risk analysis systems when profiling
  • priority treatment if physical controls are conducted
  • mutual recognition of AEO programmes under Joint Customs Cooperation Agreements which could result in faster movement of goods through third country borders
