Security declarations for AEOs

Details

If HM Revenue and Customs completes an audit, this document can be used to form evidence showing that the Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) business has made it clear to the relevant business partner(s) of their requirements under the AEO programme.

This document is a template and can be amended to suit the needs of the individual business. If those needs are already included in contracts or other types of agreements then security declarations won’t be needed.
