Where postal, express or courier services lodge customs declarations for customers other than economic operators within the meaning of Article 5(5) of the Union Customs Code (i.e. Unionszollkodex – UZK), the relevant service provider has no obligation to provide an EORI number. An EORI number is not required, either, where a person other than an economic operator lodges a written customs declaration under private travel. This exception, however, will apply only if the relevant person lodges customs declarations just occasionally, that is, less than ten times a year.
