amfori announces the Position Paper on new Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) proposal

15-03-2022

amfori has responded with a position paper to the Commission's proposed replacement of the current Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) regulation.  Our position paper includes recommendations such as:

- current GSP+ countries should prove that they are effectively implementing the ILO/UN conventions to which they are bound

- additional tariff reductions should be given for products produced sustainably

- additional tariff reductions to be given for clothing and footwear, originating in standard GSP countries

- a call for increased monitoring and greater transparency
