EORI Registration

In November 2013 all carriers of T1 cargo will be obliged to submit their manifests to customs in an electronic format.This will include the EORI numbers of shippers, consignees and notify parties.

The basic purpose of EORI is to establish a system whereby every trader who interacts with Customs Authorities in any Member State of the EU is allocated a unique reference number. This reference number will be valid throughout the EU and will serve as a common reference number for the trader’s interaction with the Customs Authorities of any Member State. The number will have to be used by traders in all customs declarations with effect from 1 July 2009. It will also be used for the exchange of information between the Customs authorities of the EU, and where appropriate, between Customs and other authorities e.g. statistical authorities.

In order to minimise disruption to traders, Revenue has decided to align the EORI number to the VAT number to avoid a situation whereby traders would need to make significant adjustments to their own internal electronic systems.

In addition this will allow AEO approved traders to avail of the benefits of their AEO status and for customs to conduct a more accurate security and risk audit on cargo.

By carriers providing full and complete data to customs, the clearance and writing off of both Import and Export AEP submissions will become a much faster and efficient process.

In processing your data we undertake not to share this information with any other party other than customs and your carrier. The data will only be used for the submission of customs declarations for cargo on which you are shown as the Carrier, Shipper, Consignee, or Notify Party as required by customs.

We will never share this information with any 3rd party and we will never spam your email.
