On August 7, 2018 The United States Trade Representative (USTR) released the final list of products on List 2 that will be subject to a 25% additional tariff for goods imported from China. The original list contained 284 tariff items, and the final list contains 279. The five tariff items that were eliminated are: 3913.10.00, 8465.96.00, 8609.00.00, 8905.90.10, and 9027.90.20.
Changes to the proposed list were made after the USTR and the interagency Section 301 Committee sought and received written comments and testimony during a two-day public hearing last month.
Note: Customs and Border Protection will begin to collect the additional duties on these Chinese imports on August 23.
