If the UK leaves the EU customs union and if you move goods to, from or through the UK you will need to register for an Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) number to continue trading with the UK.
The EORI is a ‘Safety and Security Amendment’ to the European Community Customs Code a single registration number for economic operators that engage in customs activities and has been mandatory since 1 July 2009.
The number is called ‘Economic Operators Registration and Identification number’ (EORI). The European Commission have developed an EORI course which can be downloaded from here, to download simply click “Add to Basket” beside “EORI”.
