IQD awarded Authorised Economic Operator status

Posted: 2nd August 2022

In July 2022, IQD Frequency Products Ltd has been awarded Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status by HMRC. AEO certification demonstrates that IQD’s role within the international supply chain is secure and that the customs controls and procedures are efficient and compliant.

Authorised Economic Operator status is an internationally recognised quality mark, which means we are acknowledged as a “preferred supplier”. AEO standards are not restricted to the EU; more than 70 countries are included in the AEO, or a similar initiative.

What This Means for our Customers

With IQD now having a lower risk score with customs, this will result in a reduction of physical and document-based controls so consignments will be able to clear customs quicker. Therefore, our international customers will benefit from a quicker delivery time.

The AEO status also highlights IQD as a safe and secure partner to do business with.

IQD Operations Manager Liam Gray commented: ‘IQD places particular importance on the awareness and attention of its international logistical operations, this is why obtaining the AEO status was of such importance for us. IQD can now be recognised worldwide as a safe and secure business partner in international trade’
