International companies can be granted AEO (Authorised Economic Operator) status by the customs authorities. IMEDCO was required to apply with a number of security and safety requirements to achieve the Authorised Economic Operator status. The criteria are based on the European Commission’s Community Customs Code and the associated security amendments.
The authorized economic operator Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) is a status granted to persons who are considered to be reliable with regard to the security of the international supply chain. The authorized economic operator shall be granted relief in respect of safety-relevant controls, for example fewer and less stringent border controls when importing or exporting goods.
