EORI ID_Code

EORI code (Economic Operators' Registration and Identification) is a registration and identification code used by the customs authorities of the European Union to monitor goods entering or leaving the EU. The EORI code is assigned to every economic operator (such as businesses) that wishes to engage in commercial transactions with countries outside the European Union. This code allows customs authorities to verify the identity of the economic operator and monitor import and export activities.
The EORI code consists of a unique European-level identification code, which contains both the country code of the economic operator and a unique identification number assigned by the customs authorities of the country in which the economic operator is registered. In general, private consumer operators do not need an EORI code. The EORI code is only required for economic operators engaged in commercial transactions with countries outside the European Union, such as importing or exporting goods.
If you are a private consumer purchasing products for personal use from a country outside the European Union, you generally do not need an EORI code. However, there may be some exceptions where an EORI code is required, such as if you are purchasing high-value goods or if you are purchasing goods for commercial use. However, Italian couriers who ship groupages outside the EU require the seller of the goods to ensure that their importing client has an EORI code.
The reason why couriers require EORI codes from buyers in the United Kingdom (UK) is related to the Brexit and new customs regulations that came into effect on January 1, 2021. With Brexit, the United Kingdom became a third country outside the European Union, which means that goods entering or leaving the UK must be subject to customs controls and may be subject to customs duties.
For this reason, couriers transporting goods between the UK and other countries require their clients in the UK, including private consumers, to have an EORI code. This allows customs authorities to uniquely identify the economic operator and monitor goods entering or leaving the UK.
If you are purchasing products from a country outside the UK and want the courier to deliver them to the UK, the courier may ask you to provide your EORI code to ensure that the shipment is made correctly and smoothly.

In the United Kingdom, the EORI code can be requested through the website of the British government, which is the website of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy at this link . On this website, it is possible to access the section "Get a UK EORI number to trade within the EU", where it is possible to fill out an online form to request the EORI code.
