Argentina Expands AEO Programme
Argentina recently expanded its authorised economic operator programme to incorporate customs brokers, customs transport agents and road transport shippers linked to foreign trade. To participate in the programme these entities must comply with the terms and conditions of Annex I of General Resolution 4451/2019 as well as Annex I of General Resolution 4582/2019, including requirements related to tax compliance, commercial registration systems, financial solvency, safety and technology.
Earlier this year Argentina revamped its AEO programme in line with World Customs Organisation parameters in an effort to modernise this scheme and facilitate the signing of mutual recognition agreements with the customs authorities of other countries.
