The Economic Operator Registration and Identification scheme (EORI) is an EU initiative that helps traders communicate with customs officials when they are importing and exporting goods.

Importers and exporters are able to register for an EORI number which is valid throughout the EU. They can use this number in communications with any customs authorities in the EU, for example in customs declarations where a customs identifier is required.

Traders wishing to register, or who are already registered as an Authorised Economic Operators (AEO), also need an EORI number.

In order to apply for an EORI number please follow the below links, it’s a simply form that you will only be required to complete once.  When you have the number you can use it for all your future imports and exports.
