Change in Effective Date of Duty Increase of Section 301 (Tranche 3) Duties

On May 9, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative announced an increase in the Section 301 Tranche 3 duties for products of Chinese origin. Details are contained in the Notice published in the Federal Register.

Today, May 10, 2019 a CSMS message was issued outlining 3 key points regarding how duty rates are to be assessed. We have outlined those 3 points from the CSMS message below:

  • For subject goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 a.m. eastern standard time on May 10, 2019, and exported to the United States on or after May 10, 2019, report 25% duty rate. 
  • For subject goods entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 a.m. eastern standard time on May 10, 2019, and before June 1, 2019, and exported to the United States before May 10, 2019, report 10% duty rate.
  • The subject imports of China that are entered into the United States on or after June 1, 2019 are subject to 25% duty rate.
