Licences & Accreditations

Licences & Accreditations

We are licenced and experienced to ensure our clients avoid the common problems associated with Customhouse clearance such as: storage and demurrage issues, inability of the broker to properly classify the goods for Customs purposes thus delaying the Customs entry process.

AEO

AEO status plays a vital role in the security amendment of the Customs Code which came into force on 1 July 2009. The amendment aims to ensure an equivalent level of protection through customs controls for all goods going through EU customs territory and stipulates that relevant security data must be provided electronically by economic operators before the goods enter or leave the customs territory.
