Our customer is driving us towards getting AEO Status .pdf - AEO Status
Our GM asked if can we get this also into the QMS
I said why not ?
Anyone have done anything like this ?
How have you implemented, maintained, such a process in the QMS, and how has been the CB audit in such a case.
What were the steps taken ?

Re: Adding an other process into the system.

Hi Somashekar,

Are you asking about the process of getting registered for the "Authorized Economic Operator" status, or the process of handling the goods and documentation in accordance with the AEO status requirements once you are registered?

If the first, I'd think that the process of modifying your system to comply with substantial new requirements is best handled as a project. We call ours "improvement projects". They involve gap analysis, listing and assigning tasks, project management and scheduling, progress meetings etc. Like implementing ISO 9001. In fact, we recently went through implementing ISO 3834, a system for managing welding quality, and it was strong deja-vu to our prior such projects (18000 and 9000)

If the second, well that would be the result of the first. Your existing processes will be modified to comply with your new requirements. You may have new processes too.

BTW, I think you are missing a colon after "http" in your link.

Good luck!

Looking at both Implementing and Maintaining, and as a part of integrity of the QMS when changes are planned.
