The European Union implemented this security policy aspect in European law in April 2005 with the amendment of the Customs Code (VO (EC) No. 648/2005), providing further details with the publication of the implementation regulations (VO (EC) No. 1875/2006) in December 2006. A major element of this security initiative is the introduction of the status of the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO).
Since 1st January 2008, this status can be applied for by companies who are based in the European Union, and who are involved in customs business. This status entitles them to concessions with regard to customs controls relevant to safety and/or streamlined procedures under customs regulations.
The objective is the safeguarding of the complete international supply chain, from the manufacturer of the goods to the end-user. An Authorised Economic Operator enjoys a special status: He is considered to be particularly reliable and trustworthy, and can therefore take advantage of special concessions in the course of customs clearance.
ROLLKONTOR has enjoyed this status since 2008.
