Hull & Humber - Union Customs Code (UCC) & Authorised Economic Operator (AEO)
Start Date/Time: 07 November 2017 09:30
End Date/Time: 07 November 2017 12:00

The UCC was introduced across the EU on 1st May 2016 and it affects the way many companies involved in international trade do business. The changes that were introduced in 2016 mean that achieving AEO status is more relevant than ever to your business and will continue to be relevant when we exit the EU. 

Some of the changes from 1st May 2016 include:

  • Mandatory guarantees to cover actual and potential customs debt for most special procedures such as simplified inward processing, authorised inward processing, customs warehousing and temporary storage (TS)
  • The requirement by HMRC for all businesses applying to use customs regimes or special procedures to meet the AEO criteria (regardless of whether or not they have AEO status)
  • Valuation rules for imports
  • All communications between customs authorities and economic operators are heading towards being electronic only

The seminar will cover:

  • An overview of the AEO process and what it means for your business
  • An overview of the UCC and how the changes have affected our existing Customs procedures
  • A brief update on Brexit and its impact on Customs procedures

COURSE OUTCOME: Understanding the new Union Customs Code and the importance it places on AEO and its criteria.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Importers, Exporters, Freight Forwarders, Customs Agents.

ABOUT THE TRAINER: Keith Robe, who has over 30 years experience in his former role with HMRC, will talk about the impact of the UCC to your business and take your questions.
