Pozycja konkurencyjna przedsiębiorców AEO na rynku unijnym i międzynarodowym

Ewa Gwardzińska


The Authorised Economic Operators (AEO) functioning since the year 2009 at the European Union market are constantly increasing their competitiveness in the area of international goods turnover not only at the EU market but also at the international one. The European Union has already signed agreements on the mutual recognition of AEO certificates with Switzerland, Japan, and the USA, and is currently negotiating such agreements with China and South Africa, which undoubtedly increases the certificates’ role in the international relations. It is the purpose of this article to present advantages resulting from participation in the AEO system for this group of business entities with regard to customs transactions carried out by them, due to facilitations granted in the international goods turnover. The author conducts an analysis of the applicable facilitations and she estimates their potential influence on gaining a competitive advantage on the EU and international markets.
