AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) “Authorized Exporter” approval received from Osaka Customs

June 26, 2014

Nissha Printing Co.,Ltd.

For the purpose of trade control system reinforcement, Nissha Printing Co., Ltd. obtained approval as an AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) “Authorized Exporter” from Osaka Customs on June 19, 2014. We received the “Certificate of AEO Exporter” at an issuance ceremony on June 24th.

The aim of receiving “Authorized Exporter” approval

In the fiscal year ended March 2014, the proportion of our sales that were to overseas became 73.0%. Measures for trade control have become an essential issue for the continuation of our business. We obtained the approval as an “Authorized Exporter” in order to further increase our efforts to secure safety, improve work quality and strengthen our initiatives for compliance, so that we will be able to provide a safe, reliable and speedy international logistics service to respond to the demands of our customers.
As a business with a system prepared for legal compliance and security control for international trade, it will be possible from now onwards for us to receive preferential treatment in conformance with international standards, such as the acceleration of procedures.

Future measures

There have recently been notifications issued by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism demanding that each company exercise strict control over export cargo. At Nissha, we have made efforts to strengthen security for freight, particularly for the product shipping from our factories. However, we believe that it is important that we implement continuous measures on the company-wide level for the enforcement of appropriate freight control and to raise the awareness of security among our employees.

*[For reference] The meaning of AEO (Authorized Economic Operator)

The AEO system offers the relaxation and simplification of customs procedures to businesses that have prepared a system for legal compliance and security control for freight. The aim is to ensure security whilst also achieving smoother processing in international logistics, in order to strengthen Japan’s international competitiveness. Guidelines for the introduction and construction of the AEO system were decided in the SAFE “Framework of Standards” adopted by the WCO (World Customs Organization). The AEO system in Japan follows these guidelines.
