Greetings! My name is Vita Miroshnychenko, and I lead the Customs Regulation and International Trade practice at PwC Ukraine.
I am glad that my team and I had an opportunity to develop the first in Ukraine Guide for the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) Programme.
This guide is a source of answers to key questions asked by business about an AEO it needs to know in considering obtaining this status.
It is my sincere hope that the Ukrainian business will have an opportunity to benefit from the AEO Programme and its special simplifications and this will enhance confidence in customs authorities.
We explore international experience of assessment against the AEO criteria by collaborating with our colleagues from PwC network and work closely with customs authorities that allow us to offer the most effective solutions for attaining the AEO status and facilitate business to cooperate successfully with government authorities and develop understanding.
AEO is a company participating in an international supply chain, which meets criteria established by customs authorities and has access to benefits and special simplifications.
