Now that the UK is no longer in the EU, there are new rules and regulations to understand. The most important change is in the use of Economic Operators’ Registration and Identification (EORI) numbers.
If you are a trader who imports or exports goods into or out of the European Union (EU), you will need an EORI number. This number is valid throughout the EU. It is used as a common reference number for interactions with the customs authorities in any Member State.
The biggest change as a result of Brexit is that EORI numbers are required for shipping between locations anywhere on the island of Ireland and Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).
