The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) today released a list of approximately $16 billion worth of imports from China that will be subject to a 25 percent additional tariff as part of the U.S. response to China’s unfair trade practices related to the forced transfer of American technology and intellectual property.  This second tranche of additional tariffs under Section 301 follows the first tranche of tariffs on approximately $34 billion of imports from China, which went into effect on July 6.
These tariffs will apply to Chinese-origin goods entered for consumption under the listed tariff provisions beginning on August 23rd.  The USTR also announced that interested parties will have the opportunity to file for product-based exclusions from these tariffs.  The procedures for doing so will be published in the Federal Register in the next few days.
The final list contains 279 of the original 284 tariff lines that were on a proposed list announced on June 15.  The tariff codes that were removed are set forth below:
