Internationally recognised as a mark of quality, an AEO certificate effectively demonstrates that your role within the international supply chain is secure, and that your customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant.

Whilst not mandatory, and with no current plan to make it so, the EU is none the less actively encouraging the majority of organisations who export outside of the EU to sign up to this worldwide initiative, which has been designed to ensure that international supply chains are secure and controlled from the point of origin through to the final delivery destination.

Post-Brexit, AEO certification will become even more desirable as an internationally recognised tool to keep cargo moving.

The aim of this one-day course is to help you understand the AEO requirements and benefits that can be gained in achieving AEO status. It will guide you through the application process and enable you to help your organisation achieve and crucially, maintain AEO status. The course will also highlight the pitfalls that companies typically experience and explain how to avoid delays and mistakes.
