The ‘Authorised Economic Operator. How to optimise the Customs Management in the Company’ will be the topic of the fifth session of Foro Empresas LeónUP.
The Conde Luna Palace will once more host the Foro Empresas LeónUP next 31stMay from 6 pm. to 8 pm. This session is intended for attending companies to know first-hand what the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) is and how they can obtain its authorisation. This authorisation is issued by the European Union Customs to the members of the international logistics chain, conferring them with a “secure” a “reliable” status. The AEO becomes really important from the passing of the new EU’s Customs Code in 2016, consolidating as the figure around which the new Code entirely revolves.
The target group of this Foro Empresas LeónUP is formed by companies with some type of international activity needing to face the customs procedures in the EU or in third countries such as the USA, Japan or China, countries that have recognised the EU’s AEO figure.
And for this occasion the Foro Empresas LeónUP has again invited a speaker whose expertise matches the level of the forum itself, José María Narváez, Head of the Special Service in the Area of Authorised Economic Operator within the Department for Customs and Special Taxes of the Sub-Directorate General of Customs Management (Ministry of Finance and Public Administrations). His primary functions comprise the implementation, development and maintenance of the AEO figure in Spain, including the study of law and community collaboration for its upgrading, the participation in mutual recognition agreements between the EU and Third Countries, the participation in international work meetings on the AEO; the design and updating of the AEO software, and even his facet as trainer and speaker on all the issues regarding the AEO figure.
The different topics related to the Authorised Economic Operator will be presented in this forum, such as the requirements to obtain the AEO authorisation and its main benefits.
