AEO – Authorised Economic Operator – Impact on Importers and Exporters
Union Customs Code (UCC) and Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) – Impact on Exporters & Importers
The changes that were introduced by the Union Customs Code (UCC) in May 2016 mean that achieving Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status is more relevant than ever to International Trade business and it will continue to be relevant whatever happens when we exit the EU.
