EORI Number Registration
What Is An EORI Number?
An EORI number is a number, unique throughout the European Community, assigned by a customs authority in a Member State to economic operators (businesses) or persons. By registering for customs purposes in one Member State, an Economic Operator (EO) is able to obtain an EORI number which is valid throughout the Community. The EO will then use this number in all communications with any EC customs authorities where a customs identifier is required for example customs declarations.
This number will only be issued to clients with goods already being shipped and cannot be issued unless this is the case. We only issue these numbers for goods going into or out of the U.K.
Who Needs An Economic Operator Registration And Identification (EORI) Number?
You need an Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) number if you are required to provide pre-arrival/pre-departure information for goods, or are involved in the import, export or movement of goods under a transit procedure. New security law means that you must declare your goods arriving or leaving the European Union within set time limits.
If you supply normal import or export declarations, you will be covered, but if you're not declaring them in the usual way, you will need an UK EORI number to complete an Entry Summary Declaration or an Exit Summary Declaration.
