Yesterday, the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) announced the 10 percent additional duties assessed on Chinese origin goods under Section 301 will go into effect as proposed on September 1, 2019. However, two major changes to this action have been taken:
  • Certain items have been removed from this action based on health, safety, national security and other factors.
  • Some items will have the effective date of the additional 10 percent tariffs delayed until December 15, 2019.


Linked below are the updated lists. Please replace the original Round 4 list with these two when determining if your goods qualify:


The additional tariffs for goods on both lists will start at 10 percent but it is possible that the tariffs could go as high as 25 percent in the future.

As of today, this action has not been published in the Federal Register and the provisional numbers for the additional tariffs are not yet available. The USTR announced that there will be an exclusion application process for items covered by these lists.


Please reach out to us if you have any questions or need any additional guidance. We will continue to update you as information is released.
