Lists of Exclusions to the China Tariffs

Hello. Since December 2018 there have been several lists of items that have been granted exclusion to the China Tariffs by the US Trade Representative’s Office (USTR). They are listed below and it will be to your benefit to take the time to examine them to see if any of your products appear. In some cases, just the HS code appears. In those cases, you can interpret this to mean all products that fall within that tariff number are excluded. In most cases you will find a description followed by an HS number. This means only those products that fit the scope described and fall within that HS code are exempted. Please, feel free to contact us if you have questions. $34 Billion Trade Action Exclusions Granted December 21, 2018 Exclusions Granted March 25, 2019 Exclusions Granted April 18, 2019 Exclusions Granted May 14, 2019 Exclusions Granted June 4, 2019 Exclusions Granted July 9, 2019 $16 Billion Trade Action Exclusions Granted July 31, 2019 $200 Billion Trade Action Exclusions Granted August 7, 2019    Read More

The latest on the China Tariffs

As many of you know, there have been a lot of moves lately in regard to the China Tariffs. A $300 Billion Trade Action went into effect with two lists. The first list, called Annex A, went into effect on Monday September 1st with products having a duty rate of an additional 15% over the regular duty. The second list, Annex C, will go into effect on December 15th at the same rate. We strongly suggest you check out both lists to see if any of your products are impacted.
