From 1 January 2022, checks will be intensified in the United Kingdom for having a REX declaration.
The invoice or commercial document must state that goods are of European origin. Failure to declare the origin of the goods may incur unnecessary costs.
For goods with a value of less than €6000,- the exporter may put a declaration on the documentation as to the origin. This can be done by means of:
‘The Exporter of the products covered by this document (Exporter Reference No.. declares that, except where otherwise clearly indicated, these products are of …. Preferential origin’
For goods with a value higher than €6000,- the exporter must be a Registered Exporter (REX). This prevents unnecessary import duties from having to pay.
