AUTHORIZED ECONOMIC OPERATOR (AEO)

The Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) is a figure with great importance in international trade, and of special attention with regard to customs.

The AEO is a statute that can be obtained by the community economic operators, which indicates being considered by the European Union a trustworthy figure regarding their professional activity in customs matters. It is an optional certification, although the member states, through their Customs departments, are putting pressure on customs agents and large exporting and importing companies to set up this figure.
