Medical / Drug Details
German term or phrase: Eingangsnummer
At the start of a letter applying for the authorisation or licence of a drug to be extended, brief details of the drug are given: its name, its "Eingangsnummer" and its "Ordnungsnummer".

I know "Eingang" is generally "entry", but is "entry number" acceptable in this context or is there another term I should use? TIA for your help.

I've gone with "processing number" because, as indicated in my note above, I found it used on a page in BfArM's own Web site. The site you gave, Stefan, was the only other reference I found on the Net. But "processing number" does make sense, because an application for a drug licence or authorisation is being processed. Mind you, reference number could also work in such a context. However, I don't think receiving number is right in this particular context. So processing number it is. Thanks to everyone for your assistance.
