EORI – Basic information
EORI (Economic Operators' Registration and Identification System) is a unique system of registration and identification of economic subjects and other persons that perform business activities on the territory of the EU. All the economic subjects having their seat in the EU and the third countries subjects which communicate with customs administration of the EU Member States. Physical persons that do not perform business activities are not obliged to register for the EORI number. Due to the fact that the Financial Administration of the Slovak Republic has currently no on-line inter-connection with the EORI central database, the obligation to register to the national database covers also those subjects whose EORI number was assigned by another Member States. An economic subject who intends to perform activities subjected to the customs legislation is obliged to apply for the registration by filing in an EORI application.
