Polar Special attaches great importance to safety and quality. That is why we choose to comply with a number of quality marks. We do not consider a quality mark or certificate as merely a nice piece of paper. Attention to safety and quality is deeply woven in our entire organisation. Feel free to ask our employees about this.

What do our certificates mean?

The AEO Certificate (Authorised Economic Operator) is a certificate issued by Customs to companies operating internationally. An AEO certificate offers companies advantages in international trade. For example, they are less strictly controlled during cross-border trade, which reduces delays at borders. To obtain Authorised Economic Operator status, a company must meet a number of safety criteria. These criteria are based on the Community Customs Code and the corresponding implementation regulations.
