It isn’t mandatory, but it gives quicker access to certain simplified customs procedures and in some cases the right to ‘fast-track’ your shipments through some customs and safety and security procedures.
As Brexit leads us into uncertain times, one area of international trade that will not change when we leave the EU is the issue of customs compliance and safety and security in the supply chain. Individual governments have a continuous obligation to uphold such safety and security measures and it makes good sense for businesses to demonstrate compliance. Furthermore, AEO status is viewed as a likely facilitator for any of the possible Brexit outcomes.
You can apply for AEO status for customs simplification only, known as AEO-C or for AEO-S which covers the security and safety aspect of trade or you can apply for both.
Anyone involved in the international supply chain that carries out customs related activities in the can apply for AEO status irrespective of the size of their business.
It isn’t mandatory, but as a ‘trusted trader’ it opens the door to maximum facilitation in Customs matters throughout the world where equivalent schemes are in place
