It's a tax identification number business have. They ask for it as a proof that you have a legal business looking for a an evaluation sample. They offer free samples to businesses for evaluation in hopes they will like the produce and put in a large order. They want to discuage people like us exploiting the system to get a part for free.

It means that you're authorized by your government as a reseller, and that you can charge your customers value-added tax (VAT). In the U.S. it's called a wholesaler's number.
