Why are we different?

We have unique AEO experience. The Senate Group have 20 years experience in the delivery of specialised security / risk services  and training in the UK and abroad. We initially worked on the design and development of a course to equip AEO auditors,  which is aligned with the criteria in the Union Customs Code (UCC). The Level Three course: 'Security and Safety Management in the Supply Chain' has been successfully delivered to AEO  auditors and a diverse client base which includes:

  • HMRC
  • Shipping 
  • Logistics
  • Warehouse and Distribution
  • Manufacturers

What is AEO? 

AEO status is an internationally recognised quality mark that shows your role in the international supply chain is secure

customs controls and procedures are efficient and meet EU standards

It’s not mandatory, but gives quicker access to some simplified customs procedures and, in some cases, the right to ‘fast-track’ your shipments through some customs and safety and security procedures.

What Our Customers are saying


We approached Senate with our AEO application after carrying out some extensive research of our own on consultancy groups throughout the UK. Senate clearly stood out above the rest. Their detailed knowledge of security practices and risk management was highly impressive. From start to finish, Senate provided us with the assistance we vitally needed to complete our AEO Application, and we are now AEO certified. As a company we would highly recommend Senate: throughout our partnership they were consistently professional, supportive and quick to respond to our many requests for assistance, we would not hesitate to employ them again
