The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced it would be publishing a notice in the Federal Register extending the amount of time certain goods exported from China have to enter the United States before they will be subject to an additional tariff increase from 10 percent to 25 percent.

Per USTR, “Covered products that were exported from China to the United States prior to May 10, 2019 will remain subject to an additional 10 percent tariff if they enter into the U.S. before June 15, 2019. Originally, the deadline to enter the U.S. before the goods would be subject to an additional 25 percent tariff was June 1, 2019. This limited extension will further account for customs enforcement factors and the transit time between China and the United States by sea.”
