Intergovernmental negotiations held under the auspices of UNCTAD resulted in the adoption in 1971 of the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) whereby preferential tariff treatment is granted on a non-reciprocal and non-discriminatory basis by most developed countries to exports from developing countries, with most-favoured-nation (MFN) duties reduced or eliminated. This handbook is part of a series of publications aimed at assisting exporters, producers and government officials to utilize trading opportunities available under various GSP schemes. It gives practical guidance on how to utilize the preferences under the GSP scheme of Japan. In addition to explanations on beneficiaries, product coverage, depth of tariff cuts, special measures for LDCs, graduation measures and rules of origin, etc., it provides on product by product detailed information of: GSP rates, amount of ceilings, and specific conditions for origin country acknowledgement. This handbook is published under the auspices of the UNCTAD Technical Cooperation Project on Assistance to Countries of the Asian Region on MFN and Preferential Tariffs Negotiations and GSP Utilization (RAS/97/A18). Its publication has been made possible thanks to a contribution from the Government of Japan
