The UK Generalised Scheme of Preferences from 1 January 2021
The UK GSP will continue to provide trade preferences to the same countries as the EU’s GSP. There will be 3 frameworks:
- least developed countries framework (LDCF)
- general framework
- enhanced framework
These frameworks will replicate the same market access as the EU’s GSP.
