U.S. temporarily lifts tariffs on over 400 Chinese goods

United States Trade Representative

The United States Trade Representative (USTR) has announced that temporary exclusions to the ChinaTariffs have been granted to 437 products from China. The goods range from printed circuit boards and dog leashes to Christmas tree lights and winches. These goods have been subject to the additional tariffs since 2018, and the temporary exclusions come as a result of over 1,000 requests made by U.S. companies.

The exclusions are retroactive to the dates of initial tariff implementation per the following lists:

  • July 6, 2018: implementation of tariffs on $34 billion worth of goods. This exemption will expire September 20, 2020.
  • August 23, 2018: implementation of tariffs on $16 billion worth of goods. This exemption will expire September 20, 2020.
  • September 24, 2018: implementation of tariffs on $200 billion worth of goods. This exemption will expire on August 7, 2020.

Goods identified under list four, implementation of tariffs on $300 billion worth of goods, have not yet been issued an exclusion process by the USTR in order to request exemption.
