Registered exporters (REX) are allowed to self-certify the origin of their safeguarding – a right that is becoming increasingly relevant. The reasons for which registered exporter Status may be withdrawn will be outlined below.

Proof of origin of goods is mandatory in many export matters. Among others, when goods with a value of more than 6,000 euros are shipped within the meaning of the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP). The required model UZK-DVO can only be issued by registered exporters. Therefore, withdrawal of registration must be avoided at all costs.

When can REX status be withdrawn?

The authorities will withdraw registration from companies if a REX:

  • fails to update its registration data
  • provides false information on the origin of goods in order to secure advantages (intentionally or negligently)
  • no longer meets the requirements for exporting goods under the GSP.

In addition, registration is also withdrawn if the company ceases to exist or notifies the authorities that it no longer exports under the GSP.
