With all the recent updates to tariffs, Ascent Global Logistics hopes to provide key information that will allow you to maintain peak supply chain performance. Currently, there are three main lists of tariffs of U.S. imports from China that you should be familiar with:
- Section 301 List One (USTR Annex B): currently is in the exclusion process
- Section 301 List Two (USTR Annex C): currently in the public comment process
- Section 301 List Three (Proposed): currently in the public comment process
Please note that for the lists that are currently in the public comment process, importers can request that certain information remain confidential. This request must be submitted with additional indicators on the documentation or the submission will default as public. Public submissions are open to comments from firms who may affirm or dispute any presented details.
Should the USTR take action and implement the additional duties and tariffs on U.S. imports from China, it is anticipated that there would be an exclusion process similar to the one available for the tariffs that took effect on July 6, 2018 (Section 301 List One - USTR Annex B).
Current State Of These Three Section 301 Tariff Lists For Chinese Imports:
