New EU international trade procedures require registration under EORI scheme.

October 10th, 2011

eu flag imageWith effect from 1st July 2009, a new piece of EU legislation requires all member states to adopt the Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) scheme.

All Economic Operators (defined as persons natural or legal whose businesses are regulated by Customs legislation) will need to use a unique EORI reference number in all electronic communications with Customs and other government agencies involved in the international movement of goods. In practice this means that the new regulations will apply to anyone involved with export, transit or import operations.

A unique EORI number will be allocated to each Economic Operator in the EU, to be used in all member states in which they operate, and this will replace all current customs identification numbers currently used for making import, export and transit declarations.

For further information about the EORI scheme please refer to the EU Commission’s website.
