This help doc will talk you through possible changes that you may need to make in the system.

Should you be using a carrier integration IE DHL, you may need to update the service codes on international tariffs.
Traditionally EU consignments with DHL would use the Service codes ECX or ESU these would need changing to WPX or ESI respectively.

Should you need to show a different EORI number on the booking you can use the "Show Customs" tab on an export booking which allows you to add additional information to invoices such as customs declaration, export license, shippers and consignees EORI number.
