Panasonic is bolstering compliance with each country's import/export and trade-related regulations, including but not limited to security export controls and customs laws.
In Japan, the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) system provides simpler and expedited customs procedures for business operators that have established cargo security management and legal compliance frameworks. Such operators receive customs administration certification as "specified exporters" in the AEO system.
In regions across the world, Panasonic is promoting the efforts of the AEO system, including, for example, by participating in the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) at Panasonic Corporation of North America (PNA).
