Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)

The Chamber will be running a series of seminars and workshops providing an overview of AEO, its increased relevance since the introduction of the Union Customs Code in 2016 and whatever Brexit will bring and also the AEO application process. We are also able to provide private consultation and/or a ‘hand holding’ service for businesses who are looking at or who are currently going through the AEO application process.
