The International Trade Commission (“ITC”) is assessing the impact of possible modifications to the Generalized System of Preferences (“GSP”). As explained in prior HIGHLIGHTS, GSP treatment provides preferential duty-free entry for almost 5,000 products from certain designated beneficiary countries and territories in the developing world, to promote the economic growth of those regions. The modifications would remove the current duty-free status enjoyed by three U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule subheadings for certain beneficiary developing countries. The three subheadings are 9404.30.80 (certain sleeping bags), for all GSP-eligible countries, and 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 ITC is looking at the impact on U.S. industries, U.S. imports, and U.S. consumers and is seeking input from interested parties. The ITC will hold a public hearing on December 1. Requests to appear at the hearing must be filed by 5:15 p.m. on November 15. The ITC also is accepting written comments, which must be submitted by 5:15 p.m. on December 8.
