EORI stands for Economic Operator Registration & Identification.
This system relates to all customs activity in the EU. An EORI number is a unique identification number registered to a company.
All companies involved in importing or exporting from or to a country outside the EU needs to have an EORI number.
Companies should make an application for an EORI number in the EU state in which they are registered.
Companies from outside the EU can choose which EU member state to register for an EORI number.
It is most common for a company to choose the country in which they expect to conduct most business.
An EORI number can only be issued to a company from one EU member state.
When an entity is a branch with a parent company, then the parent company should apply for an EORI number in the EU state in which it is registered.
The branch would then trade using this EORI number.
Private consumers do not need to obtain an EORI number.
