“Authorised Economic Operator” is a concept under SAFE Framework of Standards to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade of the World Customs Organization. It represents a customs-to-business partnership to enhance international supply chain security and facilitate movement of legitimate goods. The HKAEO Programme was implemented in 2012. Currently, 50 companies have been accredited as trusted partners of the C&ED to jointly secure the global supply chain and enjoy incentives including reduced or prioritised customs inspection. Hong Kong has ratified Mutual Recognition Arrangements with nine customs administrations of the Mainland, India, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, Australia and New Zealand; and those with Canada, Israel and Mexico will also be concluded soon.
