Section 301 Tariffs Increase and Expand
May 9, 2019
The United States Trade Representative has published a notice announcing modifications to the Section 301 Tariff program which will take effect on May 10, 2019. Those items already subject to the third tranche of duties, currently a 10% tariff, will become subject to a 25% tariff when this modification takes effect.
According to the notice, the USTR will institute an exclusion process for these additional duties, though no further scheduling information has been provided.
