Goods that meet the UK GSP rules of origin requirements are eligible to claim a GSP rate of import duty on the basis of a valid proof of origin. A valid proof of origin must be either of the following:
- a GSP Form A - which does not need to be stamped and signed by an authority designated by the GSP country: you can submit a copy
- an origin declaration - which must include information to enable the identification of an originating good
We advise that as an importer you ensure all goods genuinely meet the origin requirements and that the requirements outlined in section 4 and 5 are considered in detail.
