On Friday, June 15, 2018, President Trump announced that the US would be imposing a 25% tariff on Chinese technology imports. The tariffs were originally proposed on March 22, 2018 as a result of a Section 301 investigation of China’s Acts, Policies, and Practices Related to Technology Transfer, Intellectual Property, and Innovation. See our original post here.

Tariffs will be imposed on certain products starting on July 6, 2018.  Those products are listed here and consist of a subset of the products proposed on March 22. 

The announcement also came with the proposed addition of 284 products to the list of products on which tariffs will be imposed. USTR will issue a Federal Register notice soliciting comments on these proposed products in the coming days.   USTR also announced that it will soon provide the opportunity to request product exclusions from the additional duties.

Husch Blackwell LLP will continue to monitor this situation closely. For more information please contact Nithya NagarajanBeau JacksonJeffrey NeeleyRobert StangCortney Morgan, or Stephen Brophy.
