The United States Trade Representative (USTR) has determined to modify the action being taken in this Section 301 investigation by increasing the rate of additional duty from 10 to 15 percent for the products of China covered by the $300 billion tariff action published on August 20, 2019. Products covered by Annex A of the August 20, 2019 notice (84 FR 43304), the rate of additional duty will be 15 percent on the current effective date of September 1, 2019. For products covered by Annex C of the August 20 notice, the rate of additional duty will be 15 percent on the current effective date of December 15, 2019.
The 15% tariffs will be effective with respect to goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after 12:01 a.m. EDT on the appropriate dates. As a result, this tariff will apply to subject goods even if they were already on their way to the U.S. prior to these effective dates. Annex A containing list of products that will be increased to 15% on September 1 are found here.
