As you pass from one ORCAM region to another, for example from Copenhagen UIR into Hannover UIR (under control of Maastricht), you get a squawk change.

In this case you would be assigned a 07** or 34**code. The system will try to assign a code that allows you to change as few digits as possible within the constraints of the situation e.g. code not assigned in the past hour (or so).

If you then flew further into the Amsterdam and London UIRs which are in the same ORCAM region you would not have to change codes.

Hope this helps but feel free to ask more specifics if you like.
