Today we received a client alert from Dickinson Wright regarding the product exclusion process for China-sourced goods that presently are subject to Section 301 (intellectual property) tariffs.
We encourage you to stay in touch if you're sourcing products from China (in this case) or doing any kind of international business. We encourage you to get a hold of Dan Ujczo directly for your business, or contact us for more info.
Dickinson Wright has alerted us that the United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced 10% tariffs on an additional $200 billion of China-sourced goods. The full listing is available HERE.
Important dates coming up:
- Written request to attend the full hearing on the proposed tariffs is due July 27, 2018.
- Written comments regarding the proposed tariffs are due on or before August 17, 2018.
- A full hearing on the proposed tariffs will be held in Washington, DC on August 20, 2018.
Post hearing rebuttal filings must be made on or before August 30, 2018.
Then Dickinson Wright anticipates that the new tariffs will come into force in early-September.
The US Administration considered the written submission and testimony during the first wave of tariffs as more than 500 tariff lines were removed from the final determinations based on objections from companies. Should you review the proposed tariffs and find that your products will be subject to an additional 10% tariffs, we encourage you to file written comments.
Dickinson Wright is available to assist in this process.
Meanwhile, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Daniel D. Ujczo Practice Group Chair - Intl & Regional Practices, or your team at Global Chamber.
