About the Seminar

While the world was relieved after the U.S. and China reached a Phase I agreement on Jan. 15, 2020, prior measures taken by both superpowers will still have long lasting effects on the future. The U.S. Department of Commerce has or is about to implement two further actions against China in 2020.

First, on May 22, 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce published a ruling regarding imposing strict export control on Huawei. This does not only affect Huawei itself, but also all vendors in the 5G telecommunication supply chain. Moreover, unlike China dual-use regulation, U.S. export control is more complicated and affects more companies. Any companies involved in trading commodities with U.S. content are likely to be affected. This program will review  cost-effective methods to implement a global compliance program and avoid potential export control violations.

Second, Section 301 additional tariffs have been in place for about a year, as have some exclusions. There will be public hearings on products from all four lists in the next quarter. This program will review other effective duty mitigation China exporters can explore if the exclusions do not get extended.

Also, China Customs is also evolving its practices on several key aspects.

E-commerce, a new but growing market for global manufacturers, is getting unprecedented attention in China. No other country in the world has more reason to develop regulations and rules for the e-commerce market. In 2020, China published <E-commerce Law>, regulating AEO standards for E-commerce companies. This program will explore the similarities and differences between traditional trade and E-commerce, and potential ways e-commerce trade regulation will develop.

The program will also feature updates regarding China Customs' latest practice regarding royalty assessment, which has been affirmed through various communications with local Customs. This update appears to contradict local Customs’ previous practice. It is likely that local Customs are re-assessing the nature of the “royalty fee”, and escalating this kind of case to different level of Customs enforcement. The program will review how companies can prepare for Customs’ future investigation on royalty fee.

While human error is inevitable in daily operation, it is not only detrimental to accuracy, but also causes consequences for export control compliance at a time when trade professionals are facing even more rapid changes in the trade environment. Questions for trade professionals include:

  1. Do you know the MFN rate of your product when imported into U.S.? Is there any AD/CVD? How about other countries?
  2. Do you know the last time U.S. Department of Commerce issued the Entity List? Is your client enlisted?
  3. When was the last time you thought about the efficacy of your supply chain?
  4. Are you facing challenges in unpredictable and consistent regulatory changes, with no single source of truth and reduced transparency of end to end control procedures? 









  1. 你是否了解您的产品在美国的最惠国税率?是否有反倾销反补贴税?其他国家呢?
  2. 你知道美国商务部最近一次更新实体清单是什么时候?你的客户是否受到影响?
  3. 你最近一次评估供应链是什么时候?
  4. 近期,各国贸易相关法律法规不断变化且难以预测的情况下,你可曾希望有一个单一的事实来源,从而降低国与国之间出口管制的透明度?
