Advice Concerning Possible Modifications to the U.S. Generalized System of Preferences, 2010 Review of Removals

Investigation No. 332-521
USITC Publication 4215 (amended)

Summary

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) has released a public version of its report concerning possible modifications to the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP).

Advice Concerning Possible Modifications to the U.S. Generalized System of Preferences, 2010 Review of Removals, was requested by the U.S. Trade Representative. The USITC’s confidential report was submitted to the USTR on February 7, 2011.

As requested, the USITC provided advice on the likely impact on competing U.S. industries, U.S. imports, and U.S. consumers, of the removal of three HTS subheadings for duty-free status for certain beneficiary developing countries.

The three HTS subheadings were:

  • 9404.30.80 (certain sleeping bags), for all GSP-eligible countries; and

  • HTS subheadings 3919.10.20 and 3919.90.50 (certain types of self-adhesive plates, sheets, film, foil, tape, strip and other flat shapes of plastics, in rolls), for Indonesia.

The USITC’s report is now available at: http://www.usitc.gov/publications/332/pub4215amended.pdf

Also available on CD-ROM and in print; call 202.205.2000 for more information.
