Title: Generalized System of Preference (GSP) Retroactive Update

Title: Generalized System of Preference (GSP) Retroactive Update

Related: 11-000310




The purpose of this memo is to notify the Trade of the Generalized System of Preference (GSP)
retroactive process update.

On October 21, 2011, the President signed H.R. 2832, which extended the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program through July 31, 2013. The GSP program lapsed on December 31, 2010, and was retroactively renewed, allowing for a refund of all duties paid on GSP-eligible merchandise that was entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption during the period from January 1, 2011 through November 5, 2011.

CBP has completed the automated GSP refund process, and ports of entry are currently working the written requests for refunds, as well as those entry summaries which failed the automated refund process. Please note that CBP has made every effort to identify the universe of entries for which the Special Program Indicator (SPI) “A” was transmitted. However, importers should review their records to identify those entries for which a refund is due and has not been received. Importers who have not received their anticipated refund(s) by March 30, 2012, should notify the port of entry in writing. The notification should include the entry number(s) and line number(s) eligible for GSP, as well as the expected duty refund amount. A post-entry amendment or protest is not required.

For entry summaries on which the SPI A was not transmitted, the importer must request the refund in writing. The request must contain sufficient information to enable CBP to locate the entry, or to reconstruct the entry if it cannot be located. A post-entry amendment or protest is not required.

Refund requests must be received by CBP no later than April 18, 2012. Please note: There is no additional protest period following the date of liquidation.

For questions regarding the status of a refund, please contact the port of entry where the request was filed. Port contact information is available at the following link: http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/toolbox/contacts/ports/. If you have questions regarding this message, please contact Laurie Dempsey, Chief, Entry Summary, and Drawback Branch, Office of International Trade at laurie.dempsey@dhs.gov.
