1.   The import clearance figures for Developing Countries shown in the attached tables are for all import clearances from Developing Countries under the items listed. However, it is important to note that some of these imports were already ineligible for Developing Country (DC) tariff preference prior to the 1 976 Review because either a particular beneficiary (or beneficiaries) was excluded in respect of a particular product or DC imports were above the level of a DC Quota and therefore subject to General Tariff rates of duty.

Such imports ineligible for tariff preference were therefore unaffected by duty increases arising from the Review. The value of these imports as shown below should be subtracted from the totals given in the relevant tables if a precise value for each category of imports affected by duty increases is required.
