What is a Trader I.D. number and do I need one?

A Trader I.D. number is a unique number given to importers (commercial or non-commercial). You can apply for one through our website or visit one of our offices and complete and submit the form. All commercial importers are required to have a Trader I.D. number. If you are a non-commercial importer using Customs Procedure Code (CPC) 4000 (Goods imported directly to free circulation) you do not need a Trader I.D. number. Should you however need to use one of the many other CPC codes you will need a Trader I.D. number.
