If our company applies for AEO status and we are refused can we reapply? I have heard there is a 3 year waiting period before you are allowed to reapply.

There is a slight misunderstanding here. If you did apply before your compliance procedures met the AEO standards then you will get your application returned or frozen, not refused and told to do more work. Don’t be in this situation – sort out your internal compliance and suitability first. The 3 year delay before re-applying is correct but only if you have your AEO authorisation revoked
