AEO - Authorised Economic Operator

August 30.16

Authorised Economic Operator

Basing on internationally recognized standards, the European Union established the AEO concept and created in 2008 a legal basis by amendments of security prescriptions to  the „Community Customs code“ (CCC). The aim of the AEO concept is to enhance the security of the international supply chain.

For some time now KÖNIG + Co. has been entitled to bear the term "Authorised Economic Operator". Before receiving the AEO certificate, KÖNIG + Co. had to fulfil several requirements during an authorization procedure. Part of the benefits are among others: accelerated approval procedures, as consistent conditions do not need a reconsideration. Products or documentation of AEOs are less often controlled. Currently, agreements with Switzerland, Norway, Japan, the United States of America and the Peoples Republic of China are existing. The benefits result from the relevant agreements.
