The exports to the EU countries under the Generalised System of Preference (“GSP+”) of the European Union have been simplified.
The Republic of Armenia started applying the system of self-certification of origin - the Registered Exporter System (“REX” system), since 1 January 2018.
The producers and exporters must be registered in the REX electronic system in order to export local products to the EU market. The registration in the REX system enables exporting to the EU under the “GSP+” trade regime without the certificates of origin Form A, submitting only statements on origin for each export.
The registration in the REX system is done by the Ministry of Economy of RA. The registration is free of charge and is done only once (REX online appliction).

The introduction of REX system under the “GSP+” preferential trade regime contributes to the facilitation of export procedures to the EU and enables the exporter to reduce costs and save time.
For the proper implementation of the REX system the following competent authorities are operating within the system:
- the competent authorities responsible for registration and maintenance of the exporters’ data in the REX system,
- the competent authorities responsible for providing administrative cooperation to the EU, as well as enjoying full right of control and communication of data over the economic operators.
