Tariffs against $34 billion worth of Chinese goods in yearly import value will take effect for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption as of midnight on July 6, CBP said in a CSMS message.
The 25 percent duties are based on country of origin, not country of export, and only apply to products of China, CBP said.
Any of the 818 products on the list of tariffs published by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) that are admitted into a U.S. foreign trade zone (FTZ) on or after midnight July 6 may be admitted only as “privileged foreign status,” except for products eligible for admission under “domestic status,” which are subject to the Section 301 duties.
Both “privileged foreign status” and “domestic status” FTZ admissions will be subject to any Section 301 duties upon entry for consumption, CBP said.
USTR on June 15 released a list of Harmonized Tariff Schedule subheadings that will be covered by the tariffs.
Questions related to Section 301 entry filing requirements should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, and questions from the importing community concerning rejections in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) should be referred to their client representative, CBP said.
