From late autumn 2021, the Export Control Joint Unit will introduce the mandatory inclusion of EORI number on all UK export licence applications.
This new requirement will apply to all export control licences applications where a customs declaration is to be made to HMRC’s Customs Handing of Import and Export Freight (CHIEF) or the new Customs Declarations Service (CDS).
This change is estimated to take place in November 2021 and we recommend all SPIRE users to already add this to their accounts to avoid delays in their new applications.
