The Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) on April 01, 2020, instructs Local Users for Registration (REG) to accept scanned copies of pre-registration application and other documents under the European Union’s Generalised System of Preferences (EUGSP).

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, the offices of the Local Users for REG are either closed or working with skeletal staff and hence the applicants are unable to visit to the offices of Local Users to physically submit the Pre-Application Form.

Therefore, DGFT instructed that until offices of the Local Users for REG open after normalcy returns, they would accept scanned copies of the Pre-registration application and other relevant documents submitting by the applicant exporters for processing their applicants. Further, in case of any deficiency, this would be electronically communicated to the exporter and all additional documents would be accepted on email for correcting this deficiency and issuing the Registered Exporter System (REX) number.
