Reminder: New China Tariffs take Effect July 6th 2018

Earlier this month the United States Trade Representative (USTR) released a list of products imported from China that will be subject to additional duties of 25 percent. We encourage importers to carefully review the below lists and the classifications of their products to determine if they are or may be affected by these additional duties on Chinese goods.

The lists of products covers 1,102 separate U.S. tariff lines valued at approximately $50 billion in 2018 trade values. It generally focuses on products from industrial sectors that contribute to or benefit from the “Made in China 2025” industrial policy, which include industries such as aerospace, information and communications technology, robotics, industrial machinery, new materials, and automotive.

After having sought and received views from the public and advice from the appropriate trade advisory committees Customs and Border Protection will apply additional duties of 25 percent on the 818 tariff lines set out in the first set that are entered or withdrawn for consumption on or after July 6, 2018, 12:01 a.m. EST.

The second set contains 284 proposed tariff lines identified by the interagency Section 301 Committee as benefiting from Chinese industrial policies, including the “Made in China 2025” industrial policy. These 284 lines, which cover approximately $16 billion worth of imports from China, will undergo further review in a public notice and comment process, including a public hearing. After completion of this process, USTR will issue a final determination on the products from this list that may be subject to the additional duties. The USTR is seeking public comments until July 23, 2018.
