Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) Due to Expire December 31, 2017

December 8, 2017

gspThe Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) provides duty-free treatment to goods of designated beneficiary countries. The program was authorized by the Trade Act of 1974 to promote economic growth in the developing countries and was implemented on January 1, 1976.

The GSP periodically expires and must be renewed by Congress to remain in effect. The 2015 GSP reauthorization (H.R. 1295) will expire on December 31, 2017. All previous GSP renewals that have taken effect after a lapse have included a retroactive clause providing refunds to importers of eligible goods imported during the lapse period.  JAS will continue to indicate GSP on all eligible entries after expiration in preparation for a retroactive renewal.
