On April 3, 2018, the United States Trade Representative released a proposed list of the products imported from China that could be subject to additional tariffs under Section 301 actions. Section 301 of the Trade Act allows the United States to implement measures to address unfair acts, policies and practices of trading countries. The release of this list follows the release on March 22, 2018 that announced the US’s intentions to impose these tariffs and gave their commitment to release this list of products and tariffs within 15 days.
- Tariffs on approximately $50 billion worth of Chinese imports
- The list covers 1,300 separate tariff lines

The list of tariff lines will undergo further review in a public notice and comment process, including a hearing. After completion of this process, USTR will issue a final determination on the products subject to the additional duties.
