Deadline for Input on Proposed 25 Percent Tariff on $200 Billion Worth of Imports from China Now Sept. 6
The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative has set Sept. 6, rather than the previously announced Sept. 5, as the new deadline to submit written comments and post-hearing rebuttal comments in connection with a proposal to increase from 10 percent to 25 percent the additional tariff proposed in July on $200 billion worth of goods imported from China. The other key dates in this proceeding remain as previously announced: the hearing will be held Aug. 20-23 and pre-hearing submissions as well as requests to appear at the hearing (including a summary of expected testimony) are due by Aug. 13.

With such a large volume and value of imports from China subject to the proposed tariff, companies importing from China should act now to assess how it may impact their supply chains.
