Iceland launches AEO Programme
The Directorate of Customs in Iceland is implementing a national Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) programme based on international standards of the WCO SAFE Framework of Standards.
The next step in the process will be to introduce a pilot program with selected companies in Iceland and begin preparations for mutual recognition agreements (MRA) between States. The Directorate of Customs aims to sign mutual recognition arrangements with Iceland´s major business partners as a means to promote international trade. The pilot project will be launched in November 2017, with the programme set for an official launch in May 2018.
