Tariff Preference: New GSP Rules of origin

Article Date: 10 February 2012

The latest change to Notice 830 concerns Appendix l: the procedure to become a registered exporter will not commence until 2016.

This Notice replaces GSP Notes in Notice 828 and Section 10 of Notice 826.

What is this Notice about?

This notice explains the rules of origin which must be satisfied if goods are to qualify for:

- Tariff preference on importation into the EU under GSP, or

- Export to GSP countries for further processing and inclusion in finished products to be exported to the EU under the GSP – a feature known as Bilateral Cumulation of origin.

It also supplements Notices 826 and 827 which provide general information about importing and exporting under preference.

This Notice is split into two parts.

- Part A – the rules and provisions which will apply to goods exported on or after 1 January 2011, and

- Part B – changes to documentary requirements including the new Registered Exporter System (REX) which will apply from 1 January 2017.

 Who should read this Notice?

Anyone who:

- Imports goods from a GSP beneficiary country

- Exports goods to a GSP country
