Marina Barcelona 92 (MB92) has received certification as an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) this month for a more simplified customs procedure, thereby becoming one of the first companies in the reparation of large length yachts to obtain it.
This certificate allows MB92 to be an authorized economic operator for customs operations within the EU, with a unique customs code valid from the 1st of May 2016, and with all those states that have customs agreements with the EU such as the United States, China, Japan, Norway, and Canada among others.
The acquisition of this certificate has been done with the objective of gaining ease and agility in the management of customs, to obtain priority in controls and to minimize inspections. Obtaining this certificate benefits both MB92 and also all their clients and suppliers.
The AEO body is an internationally recognized quality symbol that certifies that a company’s role is more secure and that its controls and procedures comply with customs regulations of European Union. Following the general insecurity caused by several attacks – such as those in the United States during 2001 – several security mechanisms were activated in which this certificate was developed as a tool to prioritize security in international trade.
