The United States Trade Representative (USTR) today announced the next steps in the process of imposing an additional tariff of 10 percent on approximately $300 billion of Chinese imports. 

On May 17, 2019, USTR published a list of products imported from China that would be potentially subject to an additional 10 percent tariff.  This new tariff will go into effect on Sept. 1 as announced by President Trump on August 1. 

Certain products are being removed from the tariff list based on health, safety, national security and other factors and will not face additional tariffs of 10 percent.

In addition, as part of USTR’s public comment and hearing process, it was determined that the tariff should be delayed to Dec. 15 for certain items such as cell phones, laptop computers, video game consoles, certain toys, computer monitors, and certain items of footwear and clothing.
