international location number (ILN)

The International Location Number (ILN) is an international code for the unique identification of

industrial, commercial and service companies in the inter-company exchange of data and goods. The ILN code is used as part of the customer and supplier number. It exists in two different specifications: Type 1 is exclusively for the identification of companies in business transactions; Type 2 also contains the European Article Number (EAN).

The ILN number consists of five digits and is a nationally uniform company number. Among other things, it is used in the global trade identification number (GTIN) for the standardization of goods flows.
