What Manufacturers Need to Know About Steel & Aluminum Tariffs

On March 23, 2018, the government of the United States imposed tariffs of 25 percent and 10 respectively on steel and aluminum imports. While a number of critical exporting countries of these materials were exempted until May 1, 2018, many remained on the list, adding a layer of cost and complexity to American manufacturers that rely on steel and aluminum imports to create their products.

Livingston International’s Phil Sutter, a director in the U.S. Regulatory Affairs division recently spoke to Manufacturing Talk Radio about the tariffs, how they might affect manufacturers, and what manufacturing businesses in the U.S. should be doing to ensure they’re compliant with these changes in trade policy.
