EORI number

EORI numbers (Economic Operators Registration and Identification System) were introduced in 2009 and are mandatory for all businesses so that economic operators can be clearly identified. They serve as a unique identification number in the completion of all customs formalities in Europe (export / import / transit).

The use of the EORI number is a mandatory requirement for customs operations. Without the recipient’s valid EORI number, customs operations will not be possible.


In order to save time during customs operations, the validity of VAT registration numbers and EORI numbers can be checked free of charge beforehand via the European Commission’s electronic database.
