SPI Lasers achieves AEO accreditation

SPI Lasers has achieved a mark in quality with Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status, demonstrating effective security and customs compliance within our supply chain in the face of a post-Brexit Britain.

This accreditation is part of SPI Lasers’ Brexit contingency planning, with the goal being to aid frictionless trade with the EU and ensure customers worldwide continue to receive prompt delivery of their products.

The AEO concept is based on the Customs-to-Business partnership introduced by the World Customs Organisation (WCO). Traders who voluntarily meet a wide range of criteria work in close cooperation with customs authorities to assure the common objective of supply chain security and are entitled to enjoy benefits throughout the EU and in countries enjoying mutual recognition such as China, Japan and US.
