EORI amendment for Romanian branches of non-EU companies acting as exporter

In this issue:

Romanian branches of non-EU companies need to amend their EORI number to be able to act as exporter of record

As a result of the new exporter definition from a customs perspective, the EORI2 system was implemented at national level which provides new data requirements regarding the registration for customs. More specifically, information on whether economic operators are established or not in the EU territory.

If a company outside the European Union has a permanent establishment in the customs territory of the EU (e.g. a Romanian branch) it is considered, under certain conditions, as an established person.

Thus, the Romanian branches of companies not established in the EU must inform the customs authorities if they are considered to be established in the EU to continue to act as exporter of record.

Failure to do so will result in a ban of the export operations for the non-EU established company (and for its Romanian branch).

How does the above influence the activity of your company?

If you are a Romanian branch of a non-EU established company and you act as exporter of record, you must ask the customs authorities to amend your EORI number regarding your establishment in the EU territory.
