Economic Operators Registration & Identification System (EORI) - CY National procedure for EORI registration
    Economic Operators Registration and Identification System (EORI) – Procedure for CY registration

    1. Application Forms

    Economic operators established in the CY Customs’ territory must complete the application form C. 1000. Those not established in this territory must complete the application forms C. 1000 and C.1000D.

    In order to register an economic operator from a third country in the EORI Database, it is required that the economic operator is established in the EU. In such case the economic operator is registered by the customs authorities of the Member State that it is established. For registering in the Republic of Cyprus Customs Registry and EORI Database it is required to be established in Cyprus by registering in the case of a legal person, in Cyprus Registrars of Companies and Official Receiver and in the case of a natural person, by having the appropriate residence permit of the Republic of Cyprus acquired by the Civil Registry and Migration Department.

    According to article 9 of Regulation EU No 952/2013 there are some exceptions and economic operators that are not established in EU customs territory can be registered by customs authorities responsible for the place where they first lodge a declaration or apply for a decision. In such case an economic operator from a third country lodging a declaration in the Republic of Cyprus, EORI number will be given by Cyprus Customs & Excise Department by completing the application forms C. 1000, C. 1000B, C. 1000D and C.1035.

    In those cases application form C.1035 must be completed and by using this form a person established in the Republic of Cyprus is authorized to act as an indirect representative for receiving any obligations that might occur according to Customs Legislation (National & Community). Furthermore, it is noted that in the application C.1000 for obtaining EORI number, activities of the company in the European Community must be clearly stated. In addition, in the form C.1000D details of the first activity in the EU that will be carried out after the registration must be also noted. For the submission of a declaration article 170 of the Regulation EU No 952/2013 where the declarant must be established in EU customs territory must be considered.
