China Section 301 Duties to Continue After 4 Year Review

The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) confirmed that Section 301 duties for List 1 and 2 Chinese origin products will continue beyond the four year anniversary date of when they first began. 

Additional 25 percent duties were first applied on July 6, 2018 for List 1, and August 23, 2018 for List 2.

During the USTR’s four-year statutory review numerous U.S industries who benefit from the tariff actions requested a continuance.

The USTR will proceed with the next required steps, including any modifications, and will issue separate notices for them.
