1506 Graduation /Exclusion from the GSP scheme


Aiming to benefit developing countries more fairly from GSP scheme, Japan prepares the system of “graduation” to a country having achieved economic development at developed country level, and “product-by-exclusion” to a product with high level of global competitiveness. (The criteria of graduation will be changed as indicated below. The new criteria will be applied from FY2018 (“Partial Graduation”) or FY2019 (“Entire Graduation”).)

 

1.Partial Graduation

Considering its global competitiveness, the products originating from the beneficiary shall be excluded from application of the preferential treatment, if the conditions a) and b) below are satisfied.

a)Criterion for countries/territories

The beneficiary is classified as a high income economy in the “World Bank Statistics” of the previous year, or is classified as an upper middle income economy and the value of the beneficiary’s exports exceeds 1% of the total value of world exports in the “WTO statistics“ of the previous year.

b) Criterion for products

The value of Japan’s imports of the product originating from the beneficiary exceeds one billion yen and 25% of the total value of Japan’s imports of the product from all over the world in the trade statistics of two years ago (For example, in case of FY2018, the CY2016 statistics should be considered.).

After annual review at the beginning of each fiscal year, preferential tariff treatment shall be granted again when any of the above criteria is not satisfied.

 

2.Entire Graduation

A country or territory shall be excluded from the list of beneficiaries of Japan’s GSP scheme, when the beneficiary has been classified as a high income economy in the “World Bank Statistics” for three consecutive years, or has been classified as an upper middle income economy and the value of the beneficiary’s exports exceeds 1% of the total value of world exports in the “World Bank Statistics” for three consecutive years.

In a case where the country or territory which had been once excluded from the beneficiaries has not been classified as a high income country for three consecutive years, the country or territory shall be designated to be a beneficiary again if the country or territory requests so.

 

3.Product-by-Exclusion

A product originating from a beneficiary is excluded from the product coverage of the preferential treatment where it meets one of the following conditions;

1) The average value of Japan’s import of a product originating from a beneficiary for the past three years exceeds 1.5 billion yen and 50% of the total value of Japan’s imports of the product from all over the world (For example, in the case of FY2011, statistics of the CY2007,CY2008 and CY2009 should be considered.).

However, either essential export products for a beneficiary that account for more than 25% of total imports granted under preferential treatment from that beneficiary or products for which Japan agreed to provide tariff concession at the rate more favourable than that of GSP in virtually concluded EPAs are not excluded. Also, Products under the special preferential treatment for LDCs are not subject to this exclusion.

2) When a country or territory is judged to be against the conservation of certain species of fish by a Regional Fisheries Management Organization (RFMO), the products of the species originating from the beneficiary are excluded from the preferential treatment.

Where a product meets condition 1), it is excluded from preferential treatment for three years, and where it meets condition 2), it is excluded from preferential treatment until RFMO’s judgement is changed.

(Article 8-2-2 of the Temporary Tariff Measures Law, Article 25 of the Cabinet Order for Enforcement of the Temporary Tariff Measures Law)

 

By these condition, the following items originating from the respective country are currently excluded from the preferential tariff treatment.
