The economic partnership agreement with Japan will take effect as from 1st February 2019.
This agreement allows the suspension of customs duties for goods of European origin to Japan and vice versa, for approximately 90% of all products.
In order to benefit from this advantage, the exporter must register as “Saved Exporter” – REX System. This authorization is an auto-certification of the preferential origin granted by the customs authorities for the economic operators already exporting to Canada and, as from 1st February 2019, to Japan. Please note that the REX System will be in use for every new agreement between the EU and third countries.
Do not hesitate to contact MULTITRA if you have any questions.
