What is the GSP?

What is the REX?
The REX (Registered Exporter system) is the origin certification system for GSP countries. The REX was first implemented on January 1st, 2017 and is progressively replacing the previous origin certification system. The REX is based on self-certification by economic operators, unlike the previous system which required government-issued certificates of origin. See the European Commission’s website for more information.
