FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The GSP Subcommittee, Office of the 
United States Trade Representative (USTR), Room F-220, 1724 F Street, 
NW., Washington, DC 20508. The telephone number is (202) 395-6971 and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The GSP program provides for the duty-free 
importation of designated articles when imported from beneficiary 
developing countries. The GSP program is authorized by Title V of the 
Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2461, et seq.), as amended (the ``Trade 
Act''), and is implemented in accordance with Executive Order 11888 of 
November 24, 1975, as modified by subsequent Executive Orders and 
Presidential Proclamations.
    In the 2006 Annual Product Review, the Trade Policy Staff Committee 
reviewed petitions to change product coverage of the GSP. The 
disposition of those petitions is described in List I (Decisions on CNL 
Waiver Petitions in the 2006 GSP Annual Review) of the ``Results of the 
2006 GSP Annual Review.''
    The disposition of petitions considered in the 2006 Country 
Practices Review is described in List II (``Decisions on Country 
Practice Petitions in the 2006 GSP Annual Review'') of the ``Results of 
the 2006 GSP Annual Review.''
    In the 2006 Product Review, the GSP Subcommittee evaluated the 
appraised import values of each GSP-eligible article in 2006 to 
determine whether an article from a GSP beneficiary developing country 
exceeded the GSP CNLs. De minimis waivers were granted to certain 
articles that exceeded the 50 percent import share CNL, but for which 
the aggregate value of the imports of that article was below the 2006 
de minimis level of $18 million. List III of the ``Results of the 2006 
GSP Annual Review'' (Products Receiving De Minimis Waivers) is the list 
of the articles and the associated countries granted de minimis 
waivers.
    Additionally, certain articles from GSP-eligible countries that had 
previously exceeded the CNLs, but had fallen below the CNL for total 
annual trade in 2006 were redesignated for GSP eligibility pursuant to 
the 2006 review. These articles and countries are listed in List IV 
(Products Receiving GSP Redesignation) of the ``Results of the 2006 GSP 
Annual Review.'' Articles that exceeded one of the GSP CNLs in 2006, 
and that are newly excluded from GSP eligibility for a specific 
country, are listed in List V (Products Newly Subject to CNL 
Exclusions) of the ``Results of the 2006 GSP Annual Review.''
    Certain articles for which a waiver of the application of Section 
503(c)(2)(A) of the 1974 Act was issued at least five years ago, but 
which are revoked pursuant to Section 503(d)(5) are listed in List VI 
(Products for which a Waiver of the Application of Section 503(c)(2)(A) 
of the 1974 Act is Revoked) of the ``Results of the 2006 GSP Annual 
Review.''
