Handbook on the GSP scheme of the European Union


European Union's GSP scheme came into effect on July 1971.

The scheme is reviewed and modified periodically.

The current scheme is to expire on 31 December 2023.

The Handbook is intended to provide, in a consolidated and concise form, information regarding the tariff advantages and the conditions which need to be met to benefit from the European Union's GSP scheme.

Readers can find the comprehensive information on:

  1. Product coverage and depth of tariff cuts

  2. Beneficiary countries

  3. Graduation mechanism

  4. Special arrangement for Least Developed Countries (EBA)

  5. GSP Plus

  6. Other GSP measures

  7. Rules of origin

  8. Documentary requirements

While the Handbook is based on official texts, only authentic legal texts have legal value.
