I have heard that there are two different types of AEO Status, is this true and if so which is the best to apply for?

Yes, AEO is available in two categories: 1. Security and Safety and 2. Customs Simplifications. We can’t advise which is type would be the “best” to apply for because it depends on what line of business you are in and what your business perceives as the benefits of being AEO approved. Customs in the UK are recommending that companies apply for a joint certificate rather than apply for one now and then have to go through the pain of re-applying if they decide they need the other at a later date. See a later question on the differences between the types.
