Economic Operator Registration and Identification

What is an EORI? An EORI (Economic Operator Registration and Identification) number is how the European Union (EU) identifies business entities. An EORI number is required of any party intending to import into the EU or export from the EU. Do I need an EORI number for every EU country? No, a company will only have one EORI number per legal entity, and this EORI number will be used for Customs in every EU country. How do I request an EORI number? An EORI number can be requested from the local Customs website. The EORI number is usually requested from the EU country that the company’s goods will first arrive in or the EU country the company wants to export out of.
