In 2017, the REX-system was implemented in Canada, Turkey, Norway and Switserland and later it became also mandatory in Mexico, Japan and Singapore.
As from January 2019, it is also required in 22 extra countries: Bangladesh / Benin / Burkina Faso / Cabo Verde / Cambodia / Haiti / Indonesia / Kyrgyz Republic / Lesotho / Madagascar / Mauritania / Mongolia / Nigeria / Paraguay / Philippines / Samoa / Senegal / Tajikistan / Uganda / Uzbekistan / Vanuatu / Vietnam.
Because of the implementation of this new electronic system, the Form-A certificate and possible Certificate of Origin will no longer be required. The exporter will be required to register with the appropriate authority in the concerned country.
The status of Registered exporter will be given and the exporter will be able to issue his own statement regarding the origin of the commodity (normally found on the commercial invoice). He will get a REX-number and this number will have to be mentioned on the statement.
The statement will replace the function of the Form-A. The REX-system will be implemented gradually and so the Form-A will disappear in June 2020.
