Karachi, November 17, 2017 (PPI-OT):All current as well as potential Exporters to the European Union, Switzerland, and Norway are hereby re-informed that as per EU regulations for GSP beneficiary countries, Pakistan is required to completely switch to the EU’s REX (Registered Exporters) System for origin certification by December 31, 2017. Accordingly, issuance of certificate of origin by TDAP for the GSP schemes of the EU, Switzerland, and Norway will cease after this date (31stDecember, 2017) and only REX registered exporters would subsequently be able to issue Statements On Origin (SOO)themselves in respect of their shipments to these countries.
In the light of above, you are advised to kindly get yourself registered to the REX system by completing requisite formalities with the TDAP as soon as possible. The TDAP is regularly organizing orientation/ training seminars in major export cities of the country for the benefit of Pakistani exporters to explain details of the REX system, its registration process, and Rules of Origin for the EU-GSP scheme. Trade bodies interested in arranging such seminars for their members may please urgently contact the TDAP. Complete details for getting registered under the REX system are available at TDAP’s website www.tdap.gov.pk under the banner “REX System of EU-GSP”.
