Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The International Trade Commission has issued a redacted version of its report to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative on the probable economic effects of adding the following products to the list of goods eligible for duty-free treatment under the Generalized System of Preferences.

– fresh cut sweetheart and spray roses (HTSUS 0603.11.00)

– frozen vegetables not otherwise listed, including frozen broccoli (HTSUS 0710.80.97)

– artichokes, prepared or preserved otherwise than by vinegar or acetic acid (HTSUS 2005.99.80)

– refined copper wire with a maximum cross-sectional dimension of 6 mm or less (HTSUS 7408.19.0030)

This report also provides advice on the economic effect of waiving the competitive need limit for calcium silicon ferroalloys from Brazil (HTSUS 7202.99.20), which would continue GSP benefits for this product.

For each of these products, the ITC report lists information such as product description, profile of the U.S. industry and market, GSP import situation, U.S. imports and exports, and the positions of interested parties. However, the specific advice offered by ITC is not included.
