SCHMIDT SUCCESSFULLY CERTIFIED AS AEO
Faster handling of customs
After having been successfully audited, since 8 January 2016 SCHMIDT is the proud owner of its own AEO Certificate (and thus AEO, i.e. Authorized Economic Operator). For owners of this AEO Certificate, certain customs processes are being drastically simplified. As globally operating enterprise, SCHMIDT is now in a position to faster process customs procedures in other member states.
The Reason: Uniform provisions, clarified in advance by customs offices and declared to be eligible AEO criteria, do not have to be verified anew to evaluate risk and safety. In future, the AEO status is to be acknowledged even beyond the borders of the European Union. At this point in time, agreements with Switzerland, Norway, USA and China were concluded.
