Further to the Developing Countries Trading Scheme (DCTS) replacing the UK General Scheme of Preferences (GSP), the DCTS origin statement has now been updated online. We’ve shared the origin declaration wording and requirements below.
If you’re an importer, please ensure you make the changes with your suppliers. Origin statements reading ‘GSP’ will only be accepted up until 31 December 2023.
Currently there is no update to the GSP Form A. The title of the GSP Form A remains the same – Generalized System of Preferences Certificate of Form A. We will update you when changes are seen for this document.
