Difference between GSP date and BL date or shipment date

 The information provided here is part of Import Export Training course online

 

GSP date/ BL date/Shipment date – At a glance.

 

What is GSP date? When is the earliest date of Bill of Lading – BL? What do you mean by Shipment Date? What is the difference between GSP Date / BL Date / Shipment Date? Should GSP date be prior to Shipment Date? What happens if BL date prior to GSP Date? What is ‘Issued Retrospectively’ in a GSP document of Certificate of Origin?

 

Difference between GSP date and BL date or shipment date copy

Normally the date of GSP Generalized system of Preference has to be before shipment date. Because, the GSP certificate of origin has to be obtained before effecting export shipment. Either GSP or Certificate of origin certified by local Chamber of commerce need to be obtained before moving cargo to customs location or the date of such certificate of origin has to be issued before the date of bill of lading or airway bill.

 

So the date of GSP has to be on or before the date of bill of lading or the date of airway bill.

 

Can a GSP Certificate of Origin be issued after Shipment Date / Bill of Lading Date?

 

In very rare case, GSP is obtained after shipment date, but declaring on GSP as ‘issued retrospectively’.

 

I hope, I could clarify about the date of issue of GSP / Bill of Lading.

 

Would you like to explain more about this subject – Date of GSP / Date of Bill of Lading / Shipment Date?
