Economic Operators Registration and Identification number (EORI)

EORI stands for “Economic Operators Registration and Identification number”.

Businesses and people wishing to trade must use the EORI number as an identification number in all customs procedures when exchanging information with Customs administrations.

Having one common type of identification number across the EU is more efficient, both for economic operators and customs authorities.

It is also more efficient for statistical purposes and security purposes.

Format of the EORI number
The EORI number exists out of two parts:

  • the country code of the issuing Member State; followed by
  • a code or number that is unique in the Member State

Any economic operator established in the customs territory of the Union needs, for customs purposes, an EORI number.

Economic operators not established in the customs territory of the Union also need an EORI for a number of different situations.
