Physical security solutions to obtain/maintain your Economic Authorized Operator Certification

In 2005, the World Customs Organization (WCO) created the SAFE Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade, which includes the Authorized Economic Operator Program (AEO). As defined by the WCO, “the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) is a party involved in the international movement of goods in whatever function that has been approved by or on behalf of a national customs administration as complying with WCO or equivalent supply chain security standards.” Those standards relate to the following areas:

  • Demonstrated compliance with customs requirements

  • Satisfactory system for management of commercial records

  • Financial viability

  • Consultation, cooperation, and communication

  • Education, training, and awareness

  • Information exchange, access, and confidentiality

  • Cargo security

  • Conveyance security

  • Premises security

  • Personnel security

  • Trading partner security

  • Crisis management and incident recovery

  • Measurement, analysis, and improvement


Authorized Economic Operators include inter alia manufacturers, importers, exporters, brokers, carriers, consolidators, intermediaries, ports, airports, terminal operators, integrated operators, warehouses and distributors who benefit from preferential treatment from customs authorities. Benefits include expedited clearance times, fewer examinations, improved security and communication between supply chain partners, and more.
