Review of generalised scheme of tariff preferences (GSP)

Published by AGRINFO on ; Revised

Summary

On 28 June 2023 the European Parliament paused negotiations on a European Commission proposal to establish a new generalised scheme of tariff preferences (GSP) (European Parliament 2023). The existing GSP was subsequently extended until 31 December 2027 [see Extension of scheme of generalised tariff preferences (GSP)] .

Attempts by the Council of the EU in early 2024 to re-initiate talks to find agreement were not successful. As a result, further discussion of the Commission proposal will have to await the new European Parliament elected after June 2024.
