The Guam Product Seal (GPS) program was established in 1986 in an effort to stimulate economic opportunities on Guam by promoting the manufacturing of local products. In 2012, an Executive Order transferred the authority of the program from Rev & Tax to GEDA.
With our unique seal, consumers are able to distinguish products that are authentically “Made in Guam”. Over the past 33 years, GPS permit holders have continuously progressed in our island economy. As a result of this success, businesses certified under the program have provided over 750 job opportunities to our island workforce and we see a strong presence of locally made products in our consumer market.
- The Guam Product Seal may be used only for products manufactured in Guam.
- The product must result from a substantial transformation of the materials used in the creation of the product, for which a minimum of fifty percent (50%) of the value of the product has been added in Guam.
- Applicants must be U.S. Citizens or permanent resident aliens who are residents of Guam.
- Applicants must be a registered business and have a valid Guam business license or the ability to obtain one.
Guam Product Seal certificates expire annually. Certificates must be renewed prior to expiration.
