Attracting the best suppliers to meet our business needs

Information for Suppliers

Northern Ireland Protocol – Brexit

From 11pm on 31 December 2020, the new NI Protocol will require all suppliers to Translink to do the following:

  • Quote Translink’s EORI Number (Economic Operator Registration Identification) – XI617546234000 – on all paperwork which accompanies deliveries during transit from GB to NI.
  • Fulfil all orders ‘Delivered Duty Paid’.  This is covered by the Incoterm ‘DDP’ and requires suppliers to ensure that all relevant paperwork is completed, and any payments made, prior to despatching the delivery.
  • Include in the paperwork which accompanies all* deliveries to Translink a declaration that the items contained within the delivery are not ‘at risk’ (ie there is no risk of the goods either being sold on to, or utilised within, a member state of the EU). (*unless notification that an item may be ‘at risk’ is given at the point of placing the purchase order) 

At Translink, we carry out our procurement via the website. You will need to go on to their site and register as a supplier before you can respond to any of our current opportunities.
