Economic operators established in the EU who wish to apply for the AEO status should submit the application to their AEO competent customs authority of an EU Member State. The competent customs authority informs all EU Member States of the accepted application by uploading the application in the EU AEO system. This computerised system allows customs authorities to upload AEO applications and authorisations, to exchange information and to consult another EU Member State when required by legislation.
For further information related to specific EU Member States please contact the appointed contact points in the EU Member States' customs authorities.
It is also possible to get information on the AEO national WebPages of EU Member States:
