Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) Workshop

Essex Chambers of Commerce. 34a Star Lane, Great Wakering, Essex. SS3 0FF

Thursday 7th December 2017
9:30am - 12:30pm

Join us to find out why it is, and will continue to be, important to both importers and exporters, even after BREXIT.

The AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark indicating that your role in the international supply chain is secure, and that your customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant. Anyone involved in the international supply chain that carries out customs related activities in the EU, and the UK post BREXIT, should seriously consider applying for AEO status irrespective of the size of their business.
Find out more about the types of AEO authorisation and benefits on our half day awareness workshop.
During the course of the morning the workshop will cover:
  • The background, current situation and future of the status
  • Why it is important to importers and exporters post Brexit
  • Work through the readiness, application process and preparation for the customs visit
  • Evaluate the importance and how to maintain the status
  • Discuss and explore the opportunities and benefits of having AEO
Date: Thursday 7th December 2017. 9.30am to 12.30pm (Refreshments included)
Venue: Essex Chambers of Commerce. 34a Star Lane, Great Wakering, Essex SS3 0FF
Cost to attend: (Inc. VAT) £80.00 Members and £100.00 Non-Members

Attendees will, by the end of the workshop, have sufficient information and knowledge to make a reasonable judgement as to the benefits of AEO to their organisation and what steps to take next in applying for the status.
Howard Levene - Biography
I have worked in various capacities in the customs and international trade environment for many years. Having spent a number of years as an HMRC computer audit officer, I moved into industry and enhanced my experience by working with a customs software house, two of the worlds’ biggest supply chain and logistics companies, two of the big four consulting firms and most importantly as the Europe Middle East and African Customs Director for a global automotive supplier. In the past I represented the automotive supplier industry at a number of EC committees and currently chair a UK automotive customs and Trade group representing the industry at UK HMR & Customs and trade (BEIS) consultative committees.
I am business focused seeking to help companies improve their bottom line, be more efficient but maintain and improve compliance and can evidence this through savings achieved in the recent past.
I am now putting my experience to good use as an independent customs and trade adviser to a number of companies in the retail, automotive and other manufacturing and resale environments.
