EORI Number

EORI Number

EORI number is an acronym for Economic Operators Registration and Identification number. It is a unique identifier for businesses and other organizations that move goods across borders. EORI numbers are mandatory for customs clearance in the customs territory of the European Union (EU), as well as in the United Kingdom (UK).

EORI numbers consist of 17 characters, divided into two parts:

  • A two-letter country code, indicating the country that issued the number. For the UK, the country code is "GB".

  • A unique identifier, up to 15 alphanumeric characters in length. This identifier is assigned by the customs authorities of the issuing country.

For example, an EORI number for a UK business might be "GB123456789012345".

EORI numbers are used by customs authorities to identify businesses and organizations involved in customs procedures. They are used to facilitate the clearance of goods across borders, and to ensure that customs regulations are complied with.

In the UK, EORI numbers are required for the following activities:

  • Importing or exporting goods to or from the EU or other countries.

  • Using customs systems such as Customs Handling of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF).

  • Authorizing other parties to act on your behalf in customs matters.

If you are a business or organization that moves goods across borders, you will need to apply for an EORI number.
