Additional Products Under Consideration for Tariff Hike in Aircraft Subsidy Dispute

Tuesday, July 07, 2020
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has added lingonberry and raspberry jams (HTSUS 2007.99.05) and strawberry jam (HTSUS 2007.99.10) from France, Germany, Spain, or the United Kingdom to the list of products on which additional tariffs may be imposed due to the European Union’s failure to fully comply with a previous World Trade Organization ruling against subsidies it provided to aircraft manufacturer Airbus.

USTR is accepting input through July 26 on (1) removing specific products from, or maintaining them on, this list, (2) increasing the additional tariff on specific products up to 100 percent, (3) imposing additional tariffs on specific products included in two separate lists (comprising products previously considered for additional tariffs as well as newly considered goods), and (4) the rate of additional tariff (up to 100 percent) to be applied to any products drawn from these additional lists.
