Excellent particle identification (PID) is an essential component of the detector design for the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) and it will be vital for achieving the exciting physics program. A state-of-the-art PID system, comprising several innovative detectors, will be essential for disentangling the interactions happening in the EIC collisions. The high performance PID system is necessary to provide reliable separation of lepton and hadron tracks over wides ranges in rapidity and momenta, and to successfully identify between the different final-state lepton and hadron types. Here we provide an introduction to the PID requirements. We also introduce some of the specific EIC challenges and resulting current concepts concerning the implementation of an integrated PID system for the central detector.
