The U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has determined that the rate of duty for goods covered by List #3 of the China Sanctions under Section 301 will increase from 10% to 25% with respect to goods (i) entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on May 10, 2019, and (ii) exported to the United States on or after May 10, 2019. This announcement was formally published in today’s Federal Register.
Both date conditions must be met in order for the increased duties to apply.
Section 301 duties are based on the country of origin of the goods, rather than the county of export.
U.S. Customs has informed the trade that it is currently working with the USTR on additional guidance on the entry filing requirements for entries affected. Further instructions from Customs will be forthcoming.
