You need this course if your organisation is considering applying for AEO Status which is more relevant than ever with the changes introduced by the Union Customs Code (UCC) in May 2016. You will learn about the requirements for both security and customs issues and the potential implications of not being an AEO business and how this will affect your supply chain lead times and future business with Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRA) between the EU and other countries such as USA, Japan, China, India, etc. We will review the potential benefits of AEO status, what your business has to do to comply and estimate how much it might cost in time and resources. Understand how this “status” links with other similar standards, e.g. CT-PAT, ISO 28000, Aviation Security “Known Shipper”, etc., how to audit the level of customs compliance within your company.
