Vartan helps Peel achieve AEO status

[ October 1, 2019   //   ]

Felixstowe-based compliance specialist VARTAN Consultancy says it has successfully worked with Peel Ports Group to secure Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status across its five-strong UK port network. AEO certification brings a range of benefits including a reduced risk score with HMRC, fewer physical and document-based controls, reduced financial guarantees, prior notification in case of selection for customs control, and access to mutual recognition agreements. Founder Miles Vartansaid: “Having acted as consultants for over 10% of all UK companies that have achieved  AEO status, we knew how to link to the robustness of the systems Peel Ports already had in place; the group’s commitment to making changes where required and their determination to apply for and secure certification.”
