On December 31, 2017 Pakistan has completely switched over to the REX system. Accordingly, effective January 1, 2018 TDAP has stopped issuing Certificate of Origin/ Form-A for exports to the EU (28 countries), Switzerland, and Norway. Now only REX-Registered exporters are authorized to issue “Statement on Origin” for their export consignments destined for EU, Switzerland, and Norway.
However, registration under REX remains open and the TDAP is continuing to register exporters into the REX System. Around 3,700 exporters have already been registered under REX till January 18, 2018. Accordingly, all exporters to the EU, Switzerland, and Norway not yet registered are advised to get their companies registered under REX.
Important reference documents for guidance:

For speedy registration to REX, exporters are requested to send their REX Application Forms duly completed online using the Pre-Application Process in accordance with the procedure explained in the document "Simple Steps for Registration to the REX System" available on this page under “Downloads”.
