Tariff Exclusions and Delays

U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) has just announced that certain products will be excluded from the additional 10% tariff on Chinese imports set to take effect on September 1. Per the announcement, these products will be excluded due to health, safety, national security or “other” factors. The USTR also noted that the additional tariff on certain products including cell phones, laptop computers, video game consoles, certain toys, computer monitors and certain items of footwear and clothing will be delayed until December 15. An exclusion process for products that remain subject to the additional tariff will be conducted.
