Benefits of the AEO status
SThe AEO status granted in one EU Member State is recognised in the whole Community.
SThe AEO status allows a company to benefit from facilitations concerning safety and security and/or simplifications provided for in the customs rules.
As a part of the customs inspection concerning safety and security, an entrepreneur can benefit from the following facilitations:

  • is subjected to less frequent physical inspections and document controls,
  • when it is selected for inspection, it is given a priority status,
  • has a right to be informed in advance about a shipment being selected for inspection,
  • has a right to submit summary declaration comprising reduced security data requirements,
  • has a right to apply for inspection to be conducted in a place other than the customs office.

In case of an AEO submitting an application for simplifications expressly listed in art. 14b sect. 1 of the Executive Regulation, the custom authorities do not re-inspect those conditions that were already inspected when granting the AEO certificate.
