HMRC - Changes to Authorised Economic Operator applications (CIP 6)
Applications must be submitted using the EU Customs Trader Portal from the 1 June 2020.
If you’re submitting an application for Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status from 1 June 2020, you must submit them through the EU Customs Trader Portal.
This will not change the way HMRC checks your application or visits your business before we approve your application.
You’ll need to ask HMRC for access to the portal (which can take up to 5 days). The information for the current C117 will be completed online and a completed C118 (Self Assessment questionnaire) attached to the application.
We will update our guidance with the process you need to follow.
