Time for a new UK Trusted Trader Programme

The House of Lords has written to MichaelGove to highlight the importance of looking beyond tariffs in the UK-EU trade negotiations.

The existing Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) scheme will not be an adequate facilitation and a new trusted trader scheme should be devised urgently, so that it has the potential to play a significant role in facilitating future UK-EU trade.

The new scheme must be accessible to a significant number of businesses, offering different status tiers, including one that is easy to obtain for SMEs.
