AEO (Authorised Economic Operator) is a new initiative introduced by Customs Authorities in all member states of the EU. This full day presentation and workshop explains what the AEO status is but, more importantly, examines whether being an AEO will benefit your own organisation or whether staying outside the AEO system will have a detrimental effect on your business. Aimed at company heads and chief employees in both import and export, you need to attend this course if your organisation is considering applying for AEO status. It will also examine the benefits of being an AEO Approved company and the implementation of the Union Customs Code (UCC) on the 1st May 2016. Furthermore, we will give an overview of the forthcoming UCC and the effect of the new law on other authorisation for Customs Reliefs with the movement of goods in Duty Suspension, and the requirement for customs duty guarantees.
You will learn about the requirements for both security and customs issues and the potential implications of not being an AEO business. Note how this will effect your supply chain lead times and future business with Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRA) between the EU and other countries such as USA, Japan, China, India etc. We will review the potential benefits of AEO status, what your business has to do to comply and estimate how much it might cost in time and resources. Understand how this “status” links with other similar standards, e.g. CT-PAT, Sarbannes-Oxley, ISO28000, Aviation SECURITY “Known Shipper” etc. You will learn how to audit the level of customs compliance within your company and establish a policy for safety and security by knowing the nature of threats, risks and hazards in supply chains. Your trainer will also be available to answer questions from a UK, EU and World Customs development viewpoint throughout the day.
