About AEO: The security of the supply chain and the simplification of trade are becoming increasingly important worldwide and are therefore among the central topics of customs. The AEO concept is based on the SAFE Framework of the World Customs Organisation (WCO) and is the globally uniform standard which, in addition to the introduction of security standards, is intended to significantly simplify trade. In many respects, the US C-TPAT programme is cited as the inspiration for the SAFE framework. Another example is the "Authorised Economic Operator Programme" of the European Union, whose AEO status has been awarded since 01.01.2008. Open to all, economic operators voluntarily fulfil a variety of criteria, working closely with customs authorities to ensure the common goal of supply chain security and offer benefits to economic operators
