If a business has the status in one member state, that status is valid and recognised across the UK and EU.
If you have AEOS (Authorised Economic Operator security and safety) status you can benefit from arrangements under Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRA). The EU negotiates MRAs with third country customs authorities.
The EU has negotiated agreements with:
- Norway (security declarations only)
- Switzerland (security declarations only)
The benefits can include:
- Faster clearance at the frontier
- Less interventions
- Lower risk scores
