The Bribery Act came into force on 1st July 2011 and all businesses should ensure that they are compliant with the Act.

Published: Thu. 11 Jan 2018  -  This PDF file will open in a new window or tab.
AEO was introduced by the World Customs Organisation (WCO) in 2008 as part of their SAFE Framework of Standards. All WCO members have committed to implementing a version of the WCO AEO programme. Therefore, in a post Brexit environment AEO will not disappear and the UK will have to implement its own system, which in all probability will be closely aligned with the EU version.
