"...exceptionally reliable“:
The Authorized Economic Operator (AEO-F)

The increasing globalization and international commodity flow, demands a strict security obligation, due to the changed risk environment around the world. For this purpose the world customs organisation has created basic parameters for safeguarding the continual international supply chain, from the manufacturer of goods to the end consumer. An important element of this safety initiative is the status of the Authorized Economic Operator, which is valid within all of the EC (European Community). The EC commission is currently negotiating with third countries such as the USA, China and Switzerland for a worldwide acceptance of this status.

An Authorized Economic Operator is considered by the customs authorities as exceptionally credible and reliable. This coveted certificate authorizes certain privileges regarding customs clearance, which in cross-border trading can induce considerable time and cost advantages.

To be approved as an authorized economic operator we have to comply with a range of requirements. As we have our own customs department with long standing Know-How, and the latest electronic clearing technology by ATLAS/NCTS, we can comply with the strict requirements concerning a proof of competence, in the customs sector, together with the necessary safety criteria. The certification identifies us as a “reliable trading partner” to the customs authorities and in particular to our customers.

THE GREEN LINE obtained the highest status of the AEO-certificate, the level “F” for the simplification of customs laws/ security. This results in the simplification of otherwise quite complex reporting of goods to the customs authorities. The AEO-certification implies a number of benefits for our customers:

  • Fewer data sets in the advance declaration of imports and exports for companies, who are an Authorized Economic Operator.
  • Goods and documents registered by us will be checked to a lesser extent.
  • Whenever inspections or custom controls are necessary as an AEO, we will receive preferential treatment and have also the choice of the control location.

This means less delays and therefore time and cost benefits for you.
