Fatra, a. s. has acquired a new AEO Security and Safety certificate after a year-long effort and the implementation of many new measures. The supervising Customs Office was provided with a wide range of materials and evidence on the overall level of security in the areas of logistics, premises administration, customs issues, IT, HR, sales, purchasing, the acquisition of services, access rights, document administration, accounting, taxes and so on, not only from the point of view of the compliance with the laws, but also from the point of view of the actual security in each of these areas.
The AEO symbol, which Fatra is now entitled to use, constitutes a guarantee that the aforementioned internal processes meet the strict criteria designated by the European Union and the Customs Administration of the Czech Republic. Amongst other things, certification offers a number of advantages when trading both within the European Union and at destinations abroad.
The compliance with the AEO conditions is subject to regular inspections by the Customs Office every two years.
