Thermopatch BV is AEO certified. AEO stands for Authorized Economic Operator and is awarded by customs within the EU to companies that operate internationally and meet criteria based on the Community Customs Code and the corresponding implementing regulations.
In practice, the AEO recognition for Thermopatch relations means that this quality mark guarantees the security of the supply chain, both for trading partners and for customs authorities all over the world. The AEO certificate offers many advantages in international trade. For example, an AEO-certified company is less strictly controlled during cross-border trade, which prevents delays at borders. A company is also given priority in inspections and goods and documents are less often subject to inspections.
The granting of AEO status by customs is a recognition of proven reliability and applies throughout the EU.
