Update on List 4 Trump Tariffs

On August 1, 2019, President Trump announced on Twitter that the U.S. will impose a 10% tariff on roughly $300 billion worth of Chinese imports (List 4). The additional duties will go into effect beginning September 1, 2019. A confirmation from the USTR has not been issued yet.

The proposed list 4 was released on May 13, 2019. It covers essentially all of the Chinese products that were not covered by the previous lists. The comment period has been closed. We expect that the USTR will provide exclusion request procedures as it did in the previous three lists.

If you are interested in participating in the exclusion process or exploring possibilities to minimize or eliminate Section 301 duties, please contact us.
