According to a Federal Register Notice to be published on May 9, 2019, tariffs on Chinese goods worth $200 billion (also known as “List 3”) will be increased from 10 percent to 25 percent effective Friday, May 10, 2019.

The notice also announces that the United States Trade Representative (USTR) will establish a formal exclusion request process for products covered by the September 2018 action [List 3] in order to be excluded from the additional duties.

USTR “…will publish a separate notice describing the product exclusion process, including the procedures for submitting exclusion requests, and an opportunity for interested persons to submit oppositions to a request.”

This action was announced by President Trump on Sunday, May 5, 2019. His rationale is the stalled trade negotiations between the United States and China. Additionally, President Trump indicated that tariffs on a fourth list of products worth approximately $325 billion would be forthcoming. The Federal Register Notice does not have any information on a fourth list.
