Certifications-Free Zone

Safe Zone

The Safe zone is a voluntary certification built around established global standards. Free Zone accreditation is based on risk management, compliance management and a validation inspection by a vetted third party expert. From Prospect to Platinum certified, Free Zones can ultimately use this certification to apply for AEO status in accordance with relevant national customs administration.


We will provide training for categories listed below

  • World FZO Regional Offices(RO) and National Contact Points

  • International Third Party Validators

  • Safe Zone Applicants

  • Safe Zone program trainers

The World FZO contact person (a person dedicated to contact World FZO) and other key people within the your organization should get a tailor- made one-day training in all elements of Safe Zone. This can be repeated when needed, such as when new employees joins your organization.

World FZO offers one-day internal training to third party validator companies. This training should shape the basis for an accreditation model of third-party validators.

Applicants can take trainings provided by World FZO during the validation process when using the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and when meeting the third-party validator. The instrument is designed as an interactive guideline tool and serve as a training instruction for free zone staff.
