Essex Scientific Laboratory Supplies Limited (ESSLAB) are delighted to announce our approval as an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO).
Authorised Economic Operator status is an internationally recognised World Customs Organisation (WCO) quality mark that ensures ESSLAB’s role in the international supply chain is secure and has customs control procedures that meet AEO standards and criteria. This authorisation, exclusively for financially secure businesses, additionally ensures full compliance with all international security and safety standards.
ESSLAB believe AEO authorisation will bring real benefit to all our International Trading Partners, enabling us to grow our mutual business with confidence, providing:
• Greater access to priority clearance
• Reduced administration
• Reductions or waivers of deferment and comprehensive guarantees
• Increased transport security
• Fewer delays in despatch
• Improved security between supply chain partners
• Quicker access to customs authorisations
ESSLAB has achieved Customs simplifications (AEOC) which is issued to a business that fulfil the criteria of customs compliance, appropriate record keeping standards, financial solvency and practical standards of competence directly related to the activity carried out.
Although achieving AEO authorisation has proven to be a time consuming and often challenging, Mr Richard Day, MD of ESSLAB said the commercial benefits to our International Trading Partners will facilitate ESSLAB’s continued business growth.
Put simply, AEO certification demonstrates that our international supply chain is secure and that our customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant. It is a globally recognised status that is in increasingly demand.
