United States GSP Program

This program is suspended every few years and is eventually reinstated. While it is in a suspended state, duties are collected from importers and placed in a temporary account. So far, every time the program is reinstated, duties that have been collected have been returned to the importer.


Here is some recent history:

  • July 31, 2013: Suspended
  • July 29, 2015: Reinstated until December 31, 2017
  • December 31, 2017: Suspended
  • March 23, 2018: Reinstated until December 31, 2020
