Since December 2018 HM Revenue & Customs have issued approximately 74,000 new UK Economic Operator Registration and Identification (EORI) numbers, up to 23 June. The reporting for UK EORI numbers is not done on a monthly basis so a monthly breakdown for EORI numbers issued is not available. The historical information on EORI numbers is not readily accessible.
