Precision Light and Air (PLA) has been accredited Trusted Trader by the Australian Home Affairs and Border Force. 

This accreditation stream lines and simplifies customs processes for businesses involved in importing and exporting and that exceed trade compliance and supply chain security standards.

Nic Waugh, Director of PLA, said “This accreditation is above and beyond our Known Consignor status and required us to increase our factory and document security”.

“Essentially it means that PLA has been audited by Australian Border Force and is a trusted entity for customs entry and export requirements”. 

“Less regulatory red tape not only means parts to manufacture our products will arrive faster to our factory but also our final products will be delivered faster to our customers”, said Mr. Waugh.

The Australian Trusted Trader (ATT) program was launched in 2016 and now boasts more than 500 accredited businesses.  The program is the equivalent to the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) scheme adopted and recognized by several countries around the world. 

The ATT program is a cooperation between the government and industry to incentivize compliance and facilitate legitimate trade.

As a Trusted Trader, PLA will benefit from the support from a dedicated Account Manager to assist with processes and clearance issues, priority trade services, priority treatment of goods at the border and monthly data reports.

These benefits will translate into expedited processes, lower costs and faster deliveries of cargo in and out of Australia.
