What Is An Eori Number

EORI stands for Economic Operators Registration and Identification. An EORI number is a unique number assigned by customs authorities throughout the European Community to businesses and individuals who import from and export to non-EU countries. The EORI scheme replaced the TURN system (Trader’s Unique Reference Number) in July 2009 and aims to gather trade statistics and enhance existing EU security measures more efficiently. In essence, EORI numbers serve to identify traders in all dealings with customs, most commonly during customs entry and clearing processes.
