Armenia leaves GSP scheme by 01/01/2022

As from 1 January 2022, Armenia will be excluded from the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) in accordance with R/UE 2021/114, as it has been classified by the World Bank as upper-middle income country in 2018, 2019 and 2021.

Therefore, according to R/UE 2018/148, Armenia no longer qualifies for GSP beneficiary country status.

As a consequence of ceasing to be a GSP beneficiary, Armenia should also cease to be a GSP+ beneficiary country under Article 9(1) of Regulation (EU) No 978/2012.
