Germany is a member state in European Union. So the member states do have some similarities in trade procedures.  Since  Germany falls  under  EU countries,  a common  trade policy is adopted  to import  most  of  the products .   A separate rules and regulations are applied to specific products when importing and exporting in the European Union called Integrated Tariff of the European Communities (TARIC code). An EORI number is compulsory for any import, export or transit in EU countries. EORI means Economic Operator Registration and Identification.  The European Union (EU) legislation has required all member states to adopt the Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) scheme. All importers, exporters and other transporters need to use a unique EORI reference number in all electronic communications with Customs and other government agencies involved in the international trade.   This means that anyone involved with export, transit or import operations need to have EORI number.
