Section 301 Duties to Go into Effect for European Origin Products

[Updated October 09, 2019]

October 7, 2019 – The U.S. will impose Section 301 duties on European Union (EU origin) products effective October 18, 2019.

The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) announced that arbitration by the World Trade Organization (WTO), in the dispute on subsidies provided by the European Union (EU) to Airbus, awarded an annual collection of up $7.5 billion. The U.S. will use additional Section 301 duties as their means of countermeasure.

The final product list includes 10 percent additional duty on imports of new airplanes and other aircraft [of Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) 8802.40.00] which are made in France, Germany, Spain, or the United Kingdom.

Other products, will incur a 25% additional duty rate, and will depend on the country of origin, and HTS, to determine whether affected.
