New 301 Trade Action against the EU Effective 10/18/2019

The US Trade Representative (USTR) announced that, effective at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Friday 10/18/2019, there will be additional duties levied against products of certain member States of the EU. This comes after a determination by the US Trade Representative that, “…the European Union (EU) and certain member States have denied U.S. rights under the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement and have failed to implement WTO Dispute Settlement Body recommendations concerning certain subsidies to the EU large civil aircraft industry.” This determination was reached after an investigation launched on April 12, 2019.

Below are links to the Final Product List (posted on 10/2/19) as well as the Notice of Determination of Action (posted 10/4/19). We invite you to look at both documents to determine if products you import appear on either list. If so, then tariffs against those products will commence on the date stated above. Please note that the articles subject to the tariff are wide-ranging and not just aircraft or aircraft parts.
