Registered Exporters System (REX)

Following Brexit, EU exporters to the UK wishing to claim preferential origin will need to be registered under REX.

The REX system provides for certification of origin on imports into the European Union (EU) / UK from certain countries under the Generalised System of Preference (GSP). It also provides for the certification of origin on preferential origin exports from the EU to Canada, Japan and the UK.

It allows a registered exporter to certify preferential origin. This is done by including a specific declaration on the invoice or another commercial document identifying the exported products.

If your consignment has a value of below €6,000, the statement of origin can be made with no obligation to be registered.

The GSP beneficiary countries apply the REX system.

4 Eyes Ltd can obtain REX authorization for VAT registered exporters from the Republic of Ireland. Our EU partners can obtain this for EU businesses throughout the Member States. Please contact us if this is relevant for your business. Note that UK companies cannot register for REX.
