Hemetex BV receives AEO certificate

On November 14, 2011 Hemetex BV received the combined AEO Certificate Customs Simplifications / Security, issued by the Dutch customs authorities. This means that Hemetex BV is seen as a safe and reliable partner for all customs operations. Some of the benefits associated with obtaining the AEO certificate are:

  • Less physical checks of shipments and documents
  • Priority physical checks if your shipment has been selected for a check
  • Ability to let the physical check take place at the discharging location.

 

The AEO certificate is recognized by all Member States of the European Union.

Obtaining the AEO status allows us to further optimize our services.

Backgound on AEO

The attacks that took place in New York on 11 September 2001 have resulted in a great deal of additional international attention to security issues. This has in turn resulted in the introduction of the term ‘safety and security’ in European customs legislation.

Enterprises involved in EU cross-border movements of goods and their suppliers are required to comply with this renewed legislation. When the European Union introduced this legislation it also wished to offer the business community improved facilities. These facilities will reduce logistics delays and the administrative burden imposed on enterprises.

For this reason, as from September 2007 enterprises may apply for the status of Authorised Economic Operator (AEO). AEO certificates are valid in all EU Member States.

For Dutch Customs, this introduction of the AEO status represents the next step in its cooperation with the business community: the AEO concept is compatible with the endeavours to share the responsibility for safe and sound cross-border goods flows between the business community and Customs.

Ontstaan van AEO (Authorised Economic Operator)

Na de aanslagen in de Verenigde Staten op 11 september 2001 zijn er international gezien veel maatregelen getroffen om de veiligheid van zowel het personenvervoer als het goederenvervoer te verhogen.

Om de veiligheid van het goederenvervoer te verbeteren is, na overleg tussen het Amerikaanse bedrijfsleven en douane (Customs and Border Protection), C-TPAT (Customs and Trade Pact Against Terrorism) ontstaan,een certificering voor bedrijven waarbij zij voor de douane aantonen “veilig en betrouwbaar”te zijn.

Ook binnen Europa zijn aanslagen gepleegd. De Europese Unie wil hier ook de goederenstromen beveiligen tegen terrorisme. Er is gekozen voor dezelfde aanpak als in de Verenigde Staten. Binnen de Europese Unie kunnen bedrijven een AEO (Authorised Economic Operator) certificaat behalen.

Bedrijven die een aanvraag indienen voor een AEO-certificaat worden grondig gecontroleerd op het naleven van douanevereisten, gehanteerde veiligheidsnormen,administratieve vastleggingen en financiële gezondheid van het bedrijf. Als aan alle vereisten voldaan wordt, wordt er aan het bedrijf een AEO-certificaat uitgereikt. Dit houdt in dat het bedrijf door de douane als veilig en betrouwbaar bestempeld wordt en is geldig binnen de Europese Unie.

De taak van het certificeren ligt (net als in de Verenigde Staten) bij de douane omdat de douane de overheidsinstantie is die de internationale goederenstromen controleert.

De douane kan zich nu bij haar controles volledig richten op bedrijven die niet gecertificeerd zijn. Zo is het mogelijk de goederenstromen beter te beveiligen.

Momenteel wordt er gewerkt aan wederzijdse erkenning tussen alle landen die AEO of gelijkwaardige certificering hanteren. Een AEO gecertificeerd bedrijf kan in de toekomst ook in andere, niet tot de Europese Unie behorende, landen profiteren van douaneversoepelingen en vereenvoudigingen.

Dutch Cookie Law

What is the Dutch cookie Act?

The Dutch cookie Act is an amendment to the Telecommunications Act, intended to give the user/users control over the cookies that are placed on his or her computer. The user must be clear and be fully informed about the use of cookies to better ensure its privacy. Because the user must give his consent in advance (opt-in), he must also be informed in advance so that its data is stored via a cookie. That information should be user friendly. It should also be reported for what purpose a cookie is placed.

Per 5 June 2012, the Netherlands new legislation entered into force.

Per 1 January 2013, the legislation in force regarding the presumption when using third-party cookies, also called tracking cookies (see explanation below).

The law is based on the EU ePrivacy Directive 2002/58/EC.

EPrivacy Directive – a directive – which is in each Member State transposed into national law. In the Netherlands this concerns an amendment to the Telecommunications Act (article 11.7 a).

The Dutch cookie Act was treated and at the same time as the net neutrality set out in the Telecommunications Act. Free access to the internet (net neutrality) means that specific internet services such as Skype and WhatsApp, not by providers may be taxed or blocked. Nor should there be asked for extra money.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a text file on the computer of the website visitor in which certain data is stored, such as a customer number or last viewed article. The Dutch cookie Act concerns the storing and reading out these text files. Hear Cookies traditionally at desktop PCs, particularly in the browsers (such as Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, Safari and Opera). Meanwhile, there are other devices with similar functionality, such as smartphones, tablets, and game consoles. Also as digital televisions or save information about a user, for example, decoders or reading they fall under the cookie law. These include plugins, installed apps, device fingerprinting etc. For simplicity we have in this article about cookies .An important distinction is that between functional and non-functional cookies. The first are needed for the functioning of the website – technical – well from the perspective of the website visitor.

For example, your personal settings In functional cookies are stored at a particular Web site (think of the language), or the contents of your shopping basket.

By contrast, non-functional cookies are not necessary for a correct operation of the website. An example of this are cookies from statistic programs like Google Analytics. The distinction between functional and non-functional cookies is so important because the Dutch cookie Act makes an exception for posting and reading functional cookies. For this is not need permission from the user. Another type of distinction is that between first-party and third-party cookies. The last are also called tracking cookies. This distinction, which is not explicitly stated in the Dutch cookie Act is discussed, is based on the poster of the cookie: the owner of the website (the first party) or a third party who wants to follow the website visitor, such as advertisers.

A cookie wall is an overall blockade of the website in case the visitor does not give approval for the use of cookies.

What is the purpose of a cookie?

Originally it was a possibility whether or not temporary cookie file on the user’s pc to store data. As your personal settings at a particular Web site and the contents of your shopping basket. Gradually moved many of those settings to the database on the Web site server. The cookie file on your pc or other equipment is now mainly used to recognize you: it contains your identification (ID). When a website recognize your ID, does he get your data from the server. In this way the data is no longer tied to one specific device; also if you log in using another pc, your data at your fingertips. Nowadays (the third-party or tracking) cookies especially interesting for advertisers who recognize you if you from website to website. Little by little they glean information about you by doing together. Thus they make profiles. A consequence of this is that, for example, you see ads ‘ following ‘ appearance of products you’ve viewed previously on another website. The name tracking cookies is so literally of following Internet users.

Transit – This means the transport of products of which the origin as well as the destination is in a foreign country; that they were reloaded at a sea- or airport (eventually they’ve been stored in a warehouse) and have never undergone processing in a sea- or airport.

The Transit document was processed in the past by hand, but this is not possible anymore. Since this process has been digitalized, you only can deliver only electronic documents to the customs. We make use of NCTS (New Computerised Transit System ) to deliver the documents and after processing through customs, we receive the released document back. This process usually takes only some minutes. This gives you the advantage of less delay in the control process of the documents. It will take place with the customs clearance at destination.
