Exports represent foreign currency inflows to the country, so the facilities provided by the government are many, unlike imports. There are even several government programs that support export companies that are well-registered and work within the framework of the law.

It is also not necessary to be registered in an exporters’ registry, except for 15 types of specific products where the government pays more attention to controlling tax evasion or fraud.


Which products require the exporter to be registered in the Sector Specific Register?

  • Sector 1. Alcohol, denatured alcohol, and uncrystallizable honey.
  • Sector 2. Beer
  • Sector 3. Tequila
  • Sector 4. Fermented alcoholic beverages (wines)
  • Sector 5. Distilled alcoholic beverages (Liquors)
  • Sector 6. Cigars and Tobacco products
  • Sector 7. Energy drinks, as well as concentrates, powders, and syrups for the preparation of energy drinks.
  • Sector 8. Iron ores and their concentrates.
  • Sector. 9. Gold, Silver, Copper
  • Sector. 10. Plastics
  • Sector. 11. Rubber
  • Sector 12. Wood and paper
  • Sector. 13. Glass
  • Sector. 14. Iron and Steel
  • Sector. 15. Aluminum


Exporters of these products must be registered in the “Sector-Specific Exporters Register“. The procedures are free and simple for people who are familiar with the sector of their product.

If your merchandise or product to be exported is not on this list, you do not need to be registered in any other exporters’ register.
