AEO Certification Introduction
The World Customs Organization (WCO) adopted the Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade at its 105th/106th Annual Council Meeting in 2005. The SAFE Framework of Standards is built on two pillars, namely, Customs-Customs cooperation and Customs-Business cooperation. AEO is a system introduced by the World Customs Organization to realize the Framework of Standards, which aims to build a partnership between Customs and the business community, to achieve the goals of trade security and facilitation; the AEO system is a system whereby Customs certifies and recognizes enterprises with a high level of compliance, credibility, and security, thereby granting them practical facilities and preferential measures.
By becoming an AEO Advanced certified enterprise, who can enjoy the dividend policy released by customs credit management, improve the treatment of international trade clearance, enjoy a lower inspection rate, prioritize the clearance procedures of import and export goods, reduce the frequency of inspection and verification by customs, apply for exemption from guarantee and a series of other convenient measures, and also enjoy the convenient preferential measures provided by countries that have signed AEO mutual recognition agreements with China, thus further improving the enterprise’s comprehensive competitiveness in international trade.
