UF Group recently achieved AEO (Authorised Economic Operator) accreditation.
AEO accreditation is an internationally recognised quality mark indicating that a company’s role in the international supply chain is secure, and that their customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant.
It gives faster access to certain simplified customs procedures and in some cases the right to ‘fast-track’ shipments through some customs and safety and security procedures.
To achieve accreditation, we needed to prove proficiency in a variety of practices including;
- good tax and customs compliance history
- good commercial and transport record-keeping standards
- financial solvency
- professional qualifications
Mel Pipe, Commercial Director, EUF, said “We’re very pleased to have achieved the AEO accreditation. Although it isn’t mandatory at this time, we wanted to be pro-active with achieviing AEO status, as ultimately it will benefit our customers”
