What is an Authorised Economic Operator?
An Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) is an organisation that is approved to move goods from one country to another. It is a legal designation which means that the organisation has been approved by the government for specific economic activities.
In order to be designated as an AEO, the company must provide a number of documents and information about their business. This information includes a list of all of its branches and subsidiaries, proof of capital, details on any non-EEA countries they trade in, and proof that they have adequate resources to deal with customs procedures. Once they have submitted this information, it will be assessed by the relevant government department before being designated as an AEO.
