In working with the Pacific Coast Council https://www.pacificcoastcouncil.org/ we can provide the following updates regarding US-China Trade policy, based on information we have so far. Please keep in mind all information is fluid until Federal Register notices are issued.
- The Federal Register Notice, providing details as to what is covered, and when exactly the 10% tariffs on List 4 will be applied, should be out sometime between Friday, August 9 and Tuesday, August 13.
- Based on our sources, the USTR intends effective date September 1 to be date of entry into the US, not departure from China
- USTR will not indicate what is on or off List 4 (which suggests that some HTS may not be included)
- USTR is not indicating if there will be an exclusion process for List 4
No further comments or insight as the impact of the US declaration regarding China as a Currency Manipulator
