The Economic Operators Registration and Identification System, commonly referred to as EORI, is a registration system that is mandatory for companies engaged in importing or exporting goods from or to non-EU countries within the EU.
The EORI code is specific to the country where the company is established and is required for customs clearance procedures.
For instance, if an Estonian company imports goods directly to Germany, it is still required to obtain an EORI number in Estonia, as this is where the company is registered. This ensures compliance with the EU’s customs regulations and facilitates the efficient movement of goods across borders.
The validity or invalidity of an EORI number can be checked by visiting the “Confirmation of EORI Number“.
In cases where the concerned person has authorized the disclosure of their information, it is possible to conduct a search for the name and address of the company or individual associated with that EORI number.
