DGA certified 22 companies as Authorized Economic Operators

Santo Domingo.– The General Directorate of Customs (DGA) has certified 22 companies as Authorized Economic Operators (AEO), aiming to enhance and streamline international trade from the Dominican Republic.

The AEO Program has now certified a total of 313 companies over the past three years, comprising 222 simplified AEOs and 91 international AEOs. This certification enables companies to reduce costs and streamline foreign trade operations, as per the DGA’s statement.

At a recent event, certificates were awarded to these newly certified and revalidated companies that meet the minimum security requirements and undergo debugging and validation processes.

Eduardo Sanz Lovatón, the Director-General of Customs, highlighted the AEO Program’s continuity as an example of state commitment, with over 615 accredited companies to date. He noted the program’s evolution from an administrative program under the DGA to a legally enforced initiative through Customs Law 168-21. Furthermore, he emphasized the benefits for new companies through the simplified AEO figure, representing a significant advancement for commerce in the country.

Lucía Zorilla, Deputy Director-General of the DGA, reported a growth of over 100% in AEO certifications, indicating the private sector’s keen interest and commitment to supply chain security through the adoption of best practices and compliance with minimum security requirements.

Among the certified companies are Aluvinsa Industrial SRL, Americapital SRL, Bepensa Dominicana SA, Compañía Internacional de Negocios GM SRL, Consorcio Energético Punta Cana Macao SA, and Air Ocean International SRL, as well as Philip Morris Dominicana SA, among others.
