  • EU Pref

    Hi, I remember reading that all EU exporters must become REX registered. But it has come to light recently that there are still a few that are not and still exporting quoting their Exporter Approval Number on the statement of origin, similar to what a Swiss exporter would do, for example. My question is, can the UK importer still claim duty pref. if the statement of origin from the EU exporter contains an Exporter Approval Number rather than a REX number. My thought is yes, as it's still a customs approval number as per footnote 2 of (Annex 7 of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement). Await your thoughts/confirmation. Thanks.
