Section 301 Tariff Update – China List 3 Tariff Increase Extended to June 15

Friday evening the USTR issued a statement that they would be extending the increase of the List 3 tariffs from June 1 to June 15.

Originally, USTR had provided a “grace period” for shipments that were made prior to the May 10 tariff increase but wouldn’t arrive until June 1.  A Federal Register notice will be published next week with additional details.

In addition, U.S. Customs and Border Protection issued a CSMS Message – UPDATE: Section 301 (Tranche 3) Duties as of June 1, 2019 – noting that they have not yet updated ACE to reflect the extension.  They provide some initial guidance, but will publish additional guidance when the FR notice is published and ACE is updated.

We will update members as we learn more
