CETA to apply REX system this year, following provisional application

The Commission recently informed industry that the registered exporter’s (REX) system will soon apply to the EU-Canada trade agreement (CETA). Exporters who are already registered in the REX system (originally intended for trade with GSP countries) will enjoy the preferential tariff preferences of CETA once Canada has made the necessary changes to implement the REX system. This transition period will begin once CETA is provisionally applied (expected as early as 1 July 2017) and will last until 31/12/2017, the date in which Canada must fully implement the provisions for the REX which will simplify proof of origin certification for exporters. All unregistered exporters who would like to benefit from the tariff preferences of the REX are encouraged to register.
