  •  Just fyi, GSP countries go on the list (0+ / 0-)

    and off the list, for a variety of reasons usually determined by the US Trade Representative's office.

    From the GSP guidebook:

    Are the lists of eligible articles and countries ever modified?

    Yes. The GSP Subcommittee of the Trade Policy Staff Committee (TPSC), chaired by the
    USTR and comprised of representatives of other executive branch agencies, conducts an annual
    review during which changes are considered to the lists of articles and countries eligible for
    duty-free treatment under GSP. Modifications made pursuant to the annual review are
    implemented by executive order, or Presidential Proclamation
    , and are published in the Federal
    Register. Modifications to the list typically take effect on July 1 of the calendar year after the
    next annual review is launched but may also be announced and become effective at other times
    of the year. The modifications are reflected in the electronic and hard copy versions of the
    HTSUS published by the USITC.
