As of today, GSP is back in effect and importers no longer must pay tariffs on new import shipments claiming GSP.
CBP will begin the process for issuing automatic refunds to products that claimed GSP during the lapse. CBP published a formal Federal Register notice Friday with details. Information on requesting refunds for products that did not claim GSP during the lapse is available on the CBP webpage.
While GSP has been renewed through 2020, we strongly encourage GSP program users to sign up for the free GSP Supporter List to receive periodic updates on issues such as refunds and the Annual Review process.
