Maintenance of AEO authorisation
It is the obligation of the AEO authorisation holder to verify that the requirements that were audited by the customs for the concession continue to be fulfilled.This means effectively applying the procedures or tools that the AEO has in place and updated, to detect non-compliance and irregularities in its operations, as well as taking the necessary corrective measures to resolve such situations.
It is the obligation of the holder of the AEO authorisation to inform the issuing customs authority without delay of any element arising after the granting of the authorisation which may influence its continuation or content, pursuant to Article 23(2) of Regulation (EU) no. 952/2013.
The holder of the AEO authorisation is obliged to maintain adequate compliance with the conditions and requirements demanded by the regulations for its concession, as well as with the obligations thereof.
