DGFT informs changes for self-certification under UK (DCTS)

DGFT hereby informs to all concerned authorities that the United Kingdom (UK) has replaced its existing origin declaration process under Generalized Scheme of Preferences (GSP) with the UK Developing Countries Trading Scheme (DCTS) effective from 19th June 2023. The transition period for this change was extended until 31st December, 2023. Starting from 1st January 2024 onwards, Indian Exporters to the UK are required to adhere to the new rules under DCTS to avail concessions on their exports to the UK. 

Goods that meet the UK DCTS Rules of Origin (RoO) requirements shall be eligible to claim a concessional rate of import duty for exports to the UK. Consequently, the origin criteria necessary for satisfying the Rules of Origin to avail tariff concessions on exports from India to the UK must be filled in through self-certification. 

Indian Exporters are accordingly directed to use origin declaration under DCTS scheme, in place of origin declaration under GSP which is used to file self-certification.
